Man gets 6 years in robbery, killing of gas station clerk

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Stamford man who authorities say was the lookout when a gas station clerk was robbed and gunned down in 2009 is headed to prison.

The Advocate reports that 29-year-old Mustapha Jacobs was sentenced Tuesday in Stamford to six years in prison. That time will be added to a 10-year sentence he’s serving for other convictions.

Jacobs pleaded guilty in March to armed robbery. Authorities say he was the lookout in a getaway car while Alain LeConte of Stamford shot and killed gas station cashier Jose Morales in Norwalk on Oct. 10, 2009.

Prosecutors say LeConte shot 33-year-old Morales after he turned over about $1,300 in cash. LeConte has been convicted of murder in Morales’ death and is serving a 90-year prison sentence.
