A Leavenworth man was convicted Tuesday of committing battery at a homeless shelter, according to a prosecution official.

A jury found Mark Anthony Taylor, 44, guilty of one count of aggravated battery.

The trial began Monday in Leavenworth County District Court, according to County Attorney Todd Thompson.

The charge stemmed from an incident that was reported Jan. 16 at the Leavenworth Interfaith Shelter of Hope.

Taylor reportedly used a pair of scissors to stab Alfredo Hamilton causing multiple injuries.

A hearing for post-trial motions is scheduled for June 7.

"The shelter is a wonderful place that Leavenworth is lucky to have," Thompson said in a news release. "It's sad that an incident like this took place there."
