Alain LeConte, 24, is facing up to 60 years in prison on charges of armed robbery, felony murder and attempted murder in connection with a string of convenience store robberies that occurred in 2009 in Norwalk, Greenwich and Stamford.

A jury is expected to begin deliberations on Monday in the Alain LeConte felony murder trial.

According to a report in the Stamford Advocate, the defense presented its case on Thursday and the prosecution wrapped up its testimony earlier in the week during LeConte's ongoing murder trial at Stamford Superior Court.

LeConte, 24, formerly of Greenwich, is reportedly facing up to 60 years in prison on charges of armed robbery, felony murder and attempted murder in connection with a string of convenience store robberies that occurred over a two month period in 2010 in Norwalk, Greenwich and Stamford.

In two of the robberies, LeConte allegedly shot convenience store clerks in the head. He is accused of murdering Jose Joaquin Morales at a West Avenue Shell Station on Oct. 10, 2009, as well as the attempted murder of a Mobil on the Run store clerk in Old Greenwich on Nov. 21, 2009. In addition he was allegedly involved in the armed robbery of a bodega in Stamford on Dec. 12, 2009.
