    Without context, it's incredibly hard to know.
    If you kill someone whilst they're raping you, you can plea self defence (obviously) and not go to prison at all. If he went on the hunt for the rapist and killed him, he could just get a life sentence for murder, despite his reason why. It really does depend on the details of what happened.
