Can a recorded conversation be used as evidence in a criminal case?

It depends on the circumstances. Alabama is a one party consent state, which means that if one party to the conversation consents, the recording can be used even though another party was unaware of the recording. Also, if the recording was made pursuant to a warrant, the recording may be used if all procedures were properly followed.
