PHILLIPSBURG, N. J. - Closing arguments wrapped up in the trial of Zachary Flowers Monday.
On Tuesday, the jury will begin deliberations.
If convicted of murder, Flowers could face up to 30 years in prison.
Zach Flowers is accused of shooting and killing a gas station attendant in Phillipsburg, New Jersey in 2012.
During closing arguments, Flowers lawyer insisted there was no evidence that directly linked him to pulling the trigger and instead told the jury prosecutors had the wrong man on trial.
The prosecutor told the jury that a tip and good detective work led police to Flowers.
Police said Flowers, his sister, and two friends were high and down on their luck when they hatched a plan to rob the BP gas station in Phillipsburg, New Jersey in 2012.
Police said after stealing cash, a gas station attendant was shot in leg with a shot gun and died at the hospital two days later.
Co-defendant Andrew Torres is serving a 40-year sentence after having been found guilty of armed robbery and felony murder.
Zachary's sister, Alexis, and her boyfriend David Beagell took plea deals for shorter sentences.
