A female drifter suspected in the serial killings of at least eight middle-age men was described Friday as a man-hater and "predator" who "was not the type of woman you'd take home to mother."

"Her hating men, that's what seems to be the only motive for the killings," said Marion County Sheriff's Sgt. Robert Douglas. "You've got a predator here that stalked and picked out her victims and was very effective."Aileen Carol Wuornos, 34, was charged Thursday with first-degree murder in the death of the first victim, a 52-year-old Volusia County man whose body was discovered near I-75 in December 1989.

State Attorney John Tanner - who likened the case to that of another infamous Florida serial killer, Ted Bundy - said Friday he will seek an indictment against Wuornos from a Volusia County grand jury in the next few weeks and that he will probably seek the death penalty.
