A former employee at Fort Leavenworth has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for attacking his supervisor and setting her on fire, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Clifford Currie, 55, Leavenworth, was convicted in August in U.S. District Court of one count of assault with intent to commit murder.

The charge stemmed from a Sept. 7, 2016, incident at the fort’s Munson Army Health Center, where Currie was employed at the time.

Currie reportedly threw gasoline or some other flammable liquid on his supervisor, Lt. Katie Ann Blanchard, lit her on fire and assaulted her with a straight edge razor and scissors, according to the release from the office of Tom Beall, U.S. attorney for Kansas.

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.

Currie was sentenced Thursday to the maximum of 20 years in federal prison with three years of supervision after his release. He also was ordered to pay $3.464 million in restitution to Blanchard.
