Officers in Wisconsin said they found a severed head at a home and body parts in other locations, according to a criminal complaint made public.
Taylor Schabusiness, 24, is charged with first-degree intentional homicide, mutilating a corpse and third-degree sexual assault, WBAY reported.
A court commissioner set her bond at $2 million cash at a hearing Tuesday afternoon. Schabusiness seemed calm when she appeared in Brown County court via video conference. She said little, only acknowledging that she has the right to an attorney.
The prosecutor called this “one of the most serious offenses we had in this county in some time.”
The state argued Schabusiness has ties to Texas, raising a concern she’s a flight risk. The prosecution also said Schabusiness was on put on probation seven weeks before the crime and supposed to be on monitoring but apparently wasn’t wearing her monitoring bracelet.
“I think the facts alleged are extremely concerning and disturbing and go to the violent nature and grave nature of the offense,” Assistant District Attorney Caleb Saunders said in court.
Green Bay police said they were called to a home around 3:25 a.m. local time Feb. 23. A person who lived in the home reported finding the severed head in a bucket.
Police located the human head in the basement of the home. A towel had been placed over it, and dried blood was found on a nearby mattress.
Investigators learned Schabusiness may have been the last person seen with the victim. They found her at a home and said she had dried blood on her clothing.
Police searched Schabusiness’ van and found a box with “additional human body parts including legs” on the rear passenger seat, according to the criminal complaint.
Police obtained a search warrant for the home. They found multiple other body parts, body fluids and knives.
Investigators said Taylor Schabusiness told them she and the victim had been doing drugs and having sex. She said they had used chains while having sex, and she went “crazy” and started strangling the victim.
A detective said she admitted to hiding the body parts, according to the complaint. She also went into detail about the weapons she used to dismember the body.
“Taylor 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,” officials said in the complaint.
Investigators said she told them she did not mean to kill the victim, but she enjoyed choking him and continued to do it.
Police met with the victim’s family Tuesday.
Police, forensic teams and the Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office investigated and processed multiple locations associated with the crime.

A 24-year-old Green Bay woman was charged on Tuesday with killing and then decapitating a Green Bay man at a west-side home last week after smoking methamphetamine with him.
Taylor Schabusiness is charged with first-degree intentional homicide, mutilating a corpse and third-degree sexual assault. In a criminal complaint, Brown County prosecutors accused her of removing parts of the victim’s body, using a bread knife and another knife found at the scene of the killing.
The complaint describes how officers made their grisly discovery in a home in the 800 block of Stony Brook Lane. A police officer went down the basement stairs and saw a plastic bucket on the floor. He “lifted the towel and observed a human head inside the bucket. (He) … looked around the room and observed what appeared to be dried blood on a nearby mattress,” the complaint said.
Officers and detectives found other blood around the home’s basement, as well.
Brown County Court Commissioner Chad Resar on Tuesday set bail for Schabusiness at $2 million. Assistant Brown County District Attorney Caleb Saunders cited the “violent and grave nature of the offense” and said the killing was one of the most serious to have been committed in Brown County in a long time.
Green Bay police officers had been called about 3:25 a.m. Feb. 23 to the home on Stony Brook Lane, where they found the victim’s body. Police have yet to reveal his name.

In the criminal complaint, prosecutors said Schabusiness and the man first smoked methamphetamine together on Feb. 23. They then began a sexual encounter that included Schabusiness choking the man with a chain, the complaint said, and eventually strangling him with her bare hands.
She also made comments to detectives, the complaint said, “asking if they knew what it was like to love something so much that you kill it.”
It was unclear from the complaint exactly when the victim stopped breathing; Schabusiness estimated that it took 3 to 5 minutes from when she began choking the man, but could not be exact because she had blacked out at some point.
