EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – An Evansville man already serving 135 years for one murder wants prosecutors to drop the possibility of life in prison if he is convicted of a second murder.

A judge set a hearing in the case for Earl Martin for January 6.

Martin is serving time for the December 2017 death of Christopher Hoefling.

He is scheduled to go to trial in February for the death of Erica Bradfield-Fox. Martin is accused of killing her, cutting up her body, putting the parts in bags, then putting the bags out with his weekly trash collection.
