Indian actor Shelley Malil has been convicted for repeatedly stabbing his former girlfriend

San Diego, California, County Superior Court Judge Harry Elias sentenced Malil to life in prison with the possibility of parole. He was charged in August 2008 in North County, California, with repeatedly stabbing Kendra Beebe. Two years later, a California jury found Malil guilty of premeditated attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon. He was found not guilty of burglary. The victim urged the judge to prosecute Malil to the fullest extent, saying she was fortunate to have survived his attack. "I stand before the defendant today alive, despite plunging a butcher knife into my body 23 times in an attempt to murder me. I am here," Kendra Beebe said.
