What does Judges 20:6 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Judges 20:6

And I took my concubine, and cut her in pieces
Lest it should be thought that these barbarous creatures, after they had used her in such a manner that occasioned her death, that they had committed this fact also; the Levite takes it to himself, and owns that he did that:

and sent her throughout all the country of the inheritance of Israel;
to alarm them, and excite their attention to what had passed, and to raise their indignation against it:

for they have committed lewdness and folly in Israel;
being guilty of adultery and murder, and would have committed the unnatural crime, if they could have had an opportunity of doing it.
