'40-Year-Old Virgin' actor testifies at trial

Shelley Malil says he was fighting back when he stabbed ex

Shelley Malil, the Indian-born actor accused of stabbing his ex-girlfriend at her San Diego County home two years ago, testified Monday that he understands he's responsible for her wounds but doesn't remember inflicting each one.

Malil, who was in the film "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," told the jury that he started "flailing" with a knife because he was struck in the back of the head in Kendra Beebe's yard and was fighting back, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

"I don't remember any specific act that I did that caused any specific injury to her body," Malil told the jury.
