He probably would not have been arrested here in Missouri.

Authorities said the teen was sexually abused, stabbed and beaten — suffering a black eye, lacerations and a dislocated shoulder."

I think Diallo should get a medal for improving the human gene pool.
Why was this guy even out? He should have been doing life.

That's dangerous. The husband had to try to subdue him as fast as possible, because of the risk that the perp, in trying to escape, would kill the husband. The husband had no weapon good enough to intimidate the perp into surrendering. Therefore it was automatically a fight to the death. A fight started by the perp when he committed the crime. By what possible legal logic could anyone possibly construe that as being an attack by the husband against someone who is not a danger?
I hope his lawyer presents it the way you've laid it out because then he'd get off scott free, but Diallo kept saying 'it was self defense. He went after my wife'. that's not self defense. The danger to his wife was over by then. That's taking the law into your own hands, or vigilantism.

and that's why they had to arrest him.

I sincerely hope the bad guy did threaten the husband in some way, not that I want the husband to get hurt but it would help his case a lot if the bad guy attacked first. Then it could be considered self defense. Regardless.. if there are any charges brought against the husband I hope he gets off.

Weird one. Not sure theres a right or wrong way to go about this one. I have no clue.

Why don't you go get help, see a shrink , your probably one step away from being a rapist.
