One can only hope a jury acquits the husband. Perhaps, they can give him an award for cleaning up the neighborhood.

Husband charged for beating would-be rapist to death with tire iron

The enraged husband who beat a man to death with a tire iron for trying to rape his wife inside their Bronx home has been arrested and charged with manslaughter, police said.
Mamadou Diallo, 61, came to his wife’s rescue at their Claremont Village apartment building shortly after 9:30 p.m. Monday after the terrified woman called him to tell him she had just broken free from an intruder who attacked her, cops said.
The attacker, identified as 43-year-old Earl Nash of Foxhurst, broke into the home on Washington Avenue near East 168th Street and hit the woman in the face, causing bruises to her forehead, before ripping off her clothes, police said.

Diallo’s wife of 20 years, Nene Gale, 51, “thought it was her [16-year-old] son knocking on the door so she opened the door and saw the man she did not recognize,” said Diallo’s brother Ibrahima Diallo, 52.
“She went to shut the door and the guy pushed in the door and then punched her,” said Ibrahima, recalling what a shaken Gale told him.
Nash, who has a lengthy rap sheet dating back to 1997, hit the woman in the face, causing bruises to her forehead, before ripping off her clothes, police said.
Diallo was outside the building parking his car when his wife, who managed to escape from Nash, called him on her cellphone and told him what happened.
That’s when Diallo ran into the building, where he ran into Nash – who tried to flee – in the hallway on the sixth floor and beat him unconscious, according to police.
Surveillance video shows Diallo bashing Nash with a tire iron in a bloody beating outside the elevator for up to two minutes, sources said.
Emergency responders rushed Nash, who had severe body and head trauma, to Lincoln Hospital, where he eventually succumbed to his injuries.
Cops took Diallo into custody and charged him with manslaughter for the killing.
A close friend of Diallo’s described him as a “good guy” from Guinea who has worked as a livery cab driver for 20 years.
“He’s been in this country 27 years and never had a problem with anyone,” said the friend, adding that Diallo is “innocent.”
Diallo’s neighbor said that “he did what he was supposed to do.”
“I saw him right after it happened. He saw his wife with the blood and screaming for his help and he did the right thing.”
