USA: A PROSTITUTE WHO KILLED SEVEN MEN COULD FACE THE DEATH PENALTY

Please read the Disclaimer


A Florida jury has started deliberations on whether a prostitute convicted of killing seven men, should be imprisoned for life or sent to the electric chair. Aileen Wuornos has confessed to killing seven middle-aged men, and was convicted on Monday (January 27) on the first of a series of murder charges. The jury, after one and one-half hours of deliberating, found her guilty of murdering electronics repairman Richard Mallory. Mallory was shot four times after picking up Wuornos and driving her from Tampa to the Daytona Beach area. Wuornos admitted she murdered Mallory in 1989, but claimed she acted in self-defence after Mallory tied her to the steering wheel of his car, choked, and raped her. Prosecutors depicted Wuornos as a calculating predator who killed her victims, then robbed them of money, jewelery and valuables to give as gifts to her lesbian lover. After the jury announced their guilty verdict on Monday, Wuornos, 35, called the jury "scumbags of America" as she was led out of the courtroom by deputies.
