What Penalty for Child-Molesting and Rape?

This raping violator at Deuteronomy 22:25, then proceeds to lie (shaachav) with the unwilling woman.   She then cries out – but, being in a lonely field, nobody hears and saves her. The legal penalty is very appropriate:  the man shall be put to death; but not at all the woman.

Why precisely death to this rapist?   God says:  "For it is as when a man rises against his neighbour and slays him, even so is this matter" (Deuteronomy 22:26b).   Rape is thus like a case of premeditated murder, where God says also the murderer is to get the death penalty (Genesis 9:6).   So too here, in the matter of rape.
