HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The state Supreme Court is set to hear the appeal of a Greenwich man serving a 90-year prison sentence for murdering a convenience store clerk and wounding another during a robbery spree in 2009.

Arguments are scheduled for Monday in the case of Alain LeConte. His claims include that the trial judge violated his right to confront witnesses by restricting the defense’s cross examination of his accomplice.

A state jury in Stamford convicted LeConte in 2013 of murder, attempted murder and robbery in what the judge called a “reign of terror.”

Jurors found that LeConte killed Norwalk gas station attendant Jose Joaquin Morales, nearly killed another gas station attendant in Greenwich who survived a gunshot to the head and robbed a Stamford bodega during a three-month span in late 2009.
