Beheading: The New Rape Prevention?

Many people talk about how women have a right to defend themselves from rape attempts, but many of those who say this may not be envisioning what a woman in India did when her neighbor allegedly broke into her house and tried to rape her.

Afterwards, she brought the bloody sword with her to the police station as she reported the attempted rape and her response to that attempt.

Why was she arrested? Isn't it self-defense?

In USA, what does the law say about killing in self-defense?

Kali, I don't know if she was arrested as a precaution or if they don't accept self protection as a defense.

In the US self-defense is a valid criminal defense, but it seems to vary from case to case whether criminal charges are made.
