(MOUNT VERNON) - Jurors have convicted a southwestern Indiana man of slashing sheriff's deputy who was trying to arrest him on a warrant from Kentucky.

The Posey County jury reached the verdict Wednesday against 26-year-old Brandon McManomy of rural Mount Vernon for the March 2011 attack on Deputy Dan Montgomery.

Police say McManomy grabbed a knife when officers arrived at his home west of Evansville, stabbing himself in the face and neck before cutting Montgomery's face. McManomy was hospitalized for a time in critical condition and the deputy received about 30 stitches.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports McManomy faces 20 years to 50 years in prison on attempted murder and other charges. He is serving a 15-year sentence in Kentucky for a 2010 sexual attack on a Murray, Ky., woman.
