I should be able to defend yourself, but not deliberately kill. Once the attacker is no longer a threat, you have no more need to defend yourself.
What if there was no way for me to defend myself other than kill the guy? What if me killing him was accidental (I pushed him down the stairs)?
I love the justice system. You can't kill someone to defend yourself if it is possible to do so, but there is no such restriction to someone who wants to murder you and then run away.
