Shelley Malil, an actor best knwon for his appearance in the film "40-Year-Old Virgin", was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole for stabbing his ex-girlfriend more than 20 times.
Three months ago, a jury convicted him for attempted premeditated murder and assault with a deadly weapon. On Thursday, a judge gave the actor the maximum life sentence. But, Malil will be eligible for parole in seven years.
His ex Kendra Beebe testified in court, "I stand before the defendant alive. Despite plunging a knife in me 23 times and trying to kill me, I am alive. Despite the wicked scars he left on my body, I am alive."
