A woman has been arrested on murder charges after the horribly mutilated corpse of a man was found.
According to court papers, police had attended a home early in the morning of February 23 to serve a warrant after 24-year-old Taylor Schabusiness had removed her electronic monitoring bracelet.
But in the basement of the home in Green Bay, Wisconsin, officers found a grisly scene including a severed human head inside a bucket.
They arrested Schabusiness at the scene. She faces one count each of first-degree intentional homicide, mutilating a corpse and third-degree sexual assault.
A police report says the sight that greeted officers was “grotesque”.
Schabusiness told police that she and victim Shad Thyrion had been using drugs, including meth, and having sex when Thyrion was asphyxiated.
She then sexually abused him, dismembered the body, and placed body parts in various locations in the home and a vehicle, according to the the criminal complaint.
A police statement said: ”Schabusiness made the comment that at one point, she did get paranoid and lazy and that she thought it was the "dope" that was making her paranoid."

Schabusiness has undergone two competency evaluations — one by a state expert and one by a defence expert.
On May 19, the judge ruled that she is competent to assist in her defence, according to WBAY-TV.
“She’s been psychiatrically hospitalised multiple times, she’s been diagnosed with bipolar and psychotic. This may have been one of her better days, however, I’m very surprised at the result of this report," Defence attorney Quinn Jolly said.
Thyrion's head was found in the bucket which has been placed in the basement near the stairs.
It is claimed the woman then told officers there should be a foot or a leg in her car. It is alleged by police that she told then she had just gone “crazy” and carried out the gruesome killing.
They said she will be back in court on July 5.
