This time, the judge got it right. A Bronx man who beat his wife’s would-be rapist to death was only hit with assault charges and is now home on his own recognizance.

Reports NY1:

A Bronx man is back home, now charged with assault in the beating death of a man who police said allegedly tried to rape his wife Monday.

It happened around 10:15 p.m. at a building located at 1240 Washington Avenue near 168th Street in Morrisania.

Investigators say 43-year-old Earl Nash, seen in the photo to the left, forced his way into the 51-year-old woman’s apartment and attacked her.

She managed to run away and used her cell phone to call her husband, 61-year-old Mamadou Diallo, who was just outside the building.

Investigators said Diallo confronted Nash in the hallway and beat him with a tire iron. Nash later died at Lincoln Hospital.

According to cops, Nash had 14 arrests on his record, which dated back to 1997.

There is (graphic) surveillance footage of Diallo delivering his fatal fade. Watch below.
