We're not sure we believe his story!!
40-Year-Old-Virgin's Shelley Malil testified in court on Thursday saying he mistakenly stabbed his wife Kendra Beebe, thinking she was someone else going after him in the dark.
Sitting on the witness stand, he told the jury:
"I'm sorry. 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."
The actor thought he was stabbing his wife's friend David Maldonado, in defense, after Malil claimed he thought Maldonado was coming after him with a gun.
Malil went on to describe that night:
"I heard the chair behind me backing up. I reach for the knife… I grab half the handle and he's pulling my arm, and I'm pulling away from him. I assume he's going for something else. I follow him to the kitchen. I'm almost positive this guy's got a gun and coming after me. I come around the corner. It's eerily quiet. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, I get hit from the back on the side of the head. It felt like cold granite countertop. It was going crazy. It seemed like it was going for a minute."
However, when he heard Kendra screaming, "Call 911!," he realized that he had been attacking his wife and not Maldonado.
It's hard to believe he didn't know what he was doing considering he stabbed her 20 times!!
Luckily, his wife survived the stabbing and has testified against him. He could get 21 years to life in prison.
What do U think? Do U believe his story??
