MARION COUNTY, Fla. (WCJB)-- The sentencing phase of the double murder trial of Jose Manuel Martinez, the self-proclaimed hit-man, is expected to end Wednesday

Martinez was convicted a week and a half ago in Marion County. He had previously been indicted for the 2006 murders of 20-year-old Javier Huerta and 28-year-old Gustavo Rivas.

He has confessed to more than 30 murders across the country including the double homicide in the Ocala National Forest.

The two men were found zip tied in a Nissan pick-up truck along highway 19.

Martinez was given the death penalty last week.
