Shelley Malil stabbed his girlfriend 20 times

40 Year-Old Virgin actor Shelley Malil has been jailed for life for stabbing his ex-girlfriend Kendra Beebe 20 times.

That the actor, who played Steve Carrell‘s co-worker in the 2005 comedy, was sentenced to life in prison after he stabbed his ex when he suspected her of having a relationship with another man in 2008.

Malil was found guilty three months ago of attempted premeditated murder and assault with a deadly weapon. Kendra Beebe managed to survive the attack despite suffering punctured lungs and other wounds to her body.

CTV reports that during court proceedings the actor apologised for the attack, saying: “Kendra Beebe did not deserve anything that happened to her. I can’t even begin to imagine what she has been through.”

Malil and Beebe had met a year before after being paired up on an online dating site.
