Suspected contract killer confesses

CALIFORNIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A suspected contract killer charged in central California with killing nine people has reportedly confessed to actually killing 40-people in a career spanning decades.

Prosecutors say 51-year-old Jose Martinez carried out the crimes working as an enforcer for a drug cartel.

Martinez was arrested last year shortly after crossing the border from Mexico into Arizona.

He's currently in Alabama and set to go on trial for murder in June.
