Husband is charged with manslaughter after he beat a man to death for 'breaking into his apartment, dropping his pants and trying to rape his wife'
A husband has been arrested on charges of manslaughter after he beat a man to death with a tire iron for trying to rape his wife, police said.
Mamadou Diallo, 61, was outside his Bronx apartment building when his wife, 51, called and said a man who broke in hit her, dropped his pants, and said, 'I'm going to rape you.'
Diallo ran inside, caught up with the attacker identified as Earl Nash, 43, and fractured his skull with the steel lever as Nash tried to fight back with his belt, the NY Daily News reported.
Nash died at Lincoln Hospital from 'severe trauma to his head and body' about three hours later, according to police.
