A former civilian employee at Fort Leavenworth has been convicted of attacking his supervisor with a straight razor and setting her on fire, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

A jury found Clifford Currie, 55, Leavenworth, guilty of one count of assault with intent to commit murder. The verdict came Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kansas, according to the release from the office of Tom Beall, U.S. attorney for Kansas.

The crime occurred Sept. 7 at the fort’s Munson Army Health Center, where Currie was employed at the time.

During the trial, prosecutors presented evidence that Currie threw gasoline or some other inflammable liquid on his supervisor, Katie Ann Blanchard, lit her on fire and attacked her with a straight-edge razor and scissors.

A co-worker came to Blanchard’s aid when she heard screams and saw Blanchard on fire from the chest up. Currie was subdued by hospital employees and then arrested, according to the release.

Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 31. Currie faces a penalty of 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
