I can't find anything. I'm an instructor and I should know, but I don't. Now I'm going to find out.
Tennessee law allows for the use of deadly force to prevent death or serious bodily injury to yourself or to another person. Not counting Castle issues, the state issued materials say that this is the only justifiable reason to use deadly force.
The question is, "are forcible rape and/or kidnapping items that would be considered serious bodily injury and would legally justify the use to deadly force in order to prevent or terminate?"
Opinions are welcome. Citations, especially Tennessee related ones, are greatly appreciated.
