Classic disparity of force situation. In a case where a reasonable person would conclude that the aggressor is superior in their ability to bring lethal force, even if not armed, the victim would be justified in the use of deadly force.

But that victim must reasonably believe that the aggressor has the intent, ability and opportunity to use deadly force or that force that could reasonably be expected to cause death or serious physical harm.


So, multiple aggressors, man on woman, major size difference, disability, age, all those figure in.
