A Leavenworth man has been found guilty of stabbing someone who complained the defendant had cut in line at a convenience store, according to a prosecution official.

A jury found Andrew J. Housworth, 39, guilty of aggravated battery Tuesday in Leavenworth County District Court.

The charge stemmed from a Jan. 12 incident at Star Gas, 788 Spruce St.

Housworth reportedly became upset because he had been confronted by the victim about cutting in line. Housworth reportedly stabbed the victim in the chest outside of the store, according County Attorney Todd Thompson.

A hearing for post-trial motions is scheduled for Dec. 8.
