I was watching a show about a woman who had four boys. She was married to their father who beat and raped her several times a day, every day. Sometimes he would take her out in the woods and threaten to kill her while strangling her. When she passed out he would beat her because she wouldn’t get up.
The eldest son finally called the police on his father after his father had beaten him up. The police came but left. As they were leaving the neighbors came out of their homes and begged the police not to leave. But they did anyway stating that they would come back if needed. The wife finally decided that enough was enough and she and her eldest son bludgeoned the father/husband to death.
The wife got 10 years and the son got some time as well. The judge admitted that he believed that the lady's husband had beaten her up, but stated that his hands were legally tied.
What do you think?

I think it would depend on her intent and if she did it while she was safe or while she was being beaten herself. There is a difference between a women killing her abusive husband while he sleeps and a women killing her husband while he is beating the crap out of her or her child.
