Shelley Malil has been sentenced to life in prison.
The actor, who was found guilty in September of trying to murder his ex-girlfriend, will be eligible for parole in 12 years. At yesterday's hearing, he told the judge: "I want to do whatever I need to do to make sure I make right from the wrong that I did."
Malil's victim, Kendra Beebe, was stabbed over 20 times. Her injuries included a punctured lung, along with cuts to her back, chest, arms and neck.
In his defense, the 40 Year-Old Virgin star claimed he became disoriented after arriving at Beebe's home and finding her with another man. He said he wielded his knife against an attacker he believed was trying to harm him.
The jury did not buy this story.
