LAWRENCE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Documents show mass murder suspect Jose Martinez has been charged with nine counts of murder in California.

Martinez is currently jailed in Lawrence County on a murder charge.

The documents out of Tulare County, California show Martinez operated as a contract killer with killings that date back to 1980.

The charges against Martinez in California make him eligible for the death penalty in that state.

Martinez is currently awaiting trial for the 2013 murder of Jose Ruiz in Lawrence County. He told authorities in Alabama he has killed more than 30 people in other states.
