Aileen Wuornos had a fucked up childhood. Her dad, a deranged pedophile, was serving time in jail around her birth. Later, her mother would abandon Aileen and her brother—unwanted products of two immature teens. They were subsequently adopted by their maternal grandparents. Unfortunately, it was not the end for Aileen as she would still be exposed to sexual abuse from a very young age.
The culprit? Her alcoholic grandfather.
Furthermore, she was impregnated at 14 by a friend of the sickening monster who abused her trust.
After her grandfather kicked her out when she was just a teen, Aileen found herself hitchhiking and engaging in sexual activities to make a living. This would eventually lead to an unexpected turn of events which would change her life forever.
Over the span of just 1 year, she had shot seven middle-aged men along the highways of Florida—all of which she claimed tried to beat and rape her. A hooker turned serial killer, the first man Aileen killed was Richard Mallory who was a convicted sex offender.
Fast forward to the age of 46, Aileen Wuornos was put to death via lethal injection in 2002.

I'm not purposely leaving out information to make her look like the innocent victim. I could of course write a full history on her but I'm cutting to the chase. Also, you have Wikipedia for that.
Here's my real take on this, written in just one sentence:
She didn't have to get death penalty.
