I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to watch “40 Year Old Virgin” the same way again. Shelley Malil, who played actor Steve Carrell’s co-worker in the comedy, has been jailed for life.
Malil is serving his sentence for stabbing his ex-girlfriend Kendra Beebe twenty times. The couple had been set up on an online dating site. When he stabbed her, he suspected her of having a relationship with another man back in 2008.
He was found guilty of attempted premeditated murder and assault with a deadly weapon.
Malil did apologize during the court proceedings. Despite having suffered punctured lungs and other wounds to her body, Kendra Beebe did survive the attack.
Will you be able to watch the movie the same way again? Or does it not bother you? What about online dating sites? Does something like this make you question using them? Or could this happen to anyone?
