I am shocked that some posts first suspect the husband LIKELY brought it on....looking for some reason she would do this. There is NO justification legally to do this. If he was ACTIVELY attacking her, it would be self defense. There is nothing I have read to suggest this to be the case. Do we also consider whether a man who assaults his wife must have had due cause, as well? I never see anyone write that in cases of a man attacking a woman. She should go to prison for the SAME sentence a man would get IF she is convicted.
