A hearing for a man who allegedly confessed to more than 30 murders has been continued.

It was set to begin in Lawrence County Thursday morning.

Jose Martinez was charged with murder in connection with the June 2013 shooting death of Jose Ruiz. Martinez also faces nine capital murder charges in California and is  charged with two murders in Florida.
