’40 Year-Old Virgin’ Actor Stabbed Ex 20 Times, Blames “Mistaken Identity”

September 14th, 2010 | 4 comments | Posted by Jen

Actor Shelley Malil, who played one of Steve Carell’s co-workers in The 40 Year-Old Virgin, is currently on trial in Vista, CA for unpremeditated attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and residential burglary, after stabbing his ex-girlfriend Kendra Beebe 20 times in 2008.

Malil claims the stabbing was a case of “mistaken identity,” that he thought he was being attacked by Beebe’s male friend and was simply trying to protect himself.

“I’m sorry,” Malil, 45, said in the courtroom. “I had no idea. I saw the pictures (of her wounds) for the first time, I was stunned. When I look at those pictures, I still can’t believe the knife I was holding was responsible for all those injuries.”

Taking the stand in his own defense, the actor insisted he never intended to kill or hurt Kendra Beebe, 38, at her San Diego County house one night in August 2008. But then “chaos” broke out, some of which he says he still can’t remember clearly.

The LA Times reports that the jury is set to go into deliberations Tuesday and deliver a verdict…about 5 minutes later.*

Malil faces up to 21 years in prison.

*Call it a hunch.
