The actor stabbed his girlfriend Kendra Beebe more than 20 times at her home in San Marcos, CA back in 2008.

Malil was also found guilty of assault with a deadly weapon. He will be sentenced on November 18th.

After the verdict was read, Beebe said the following:

    "I feel a sense of relief, but I have to be honest: There is never a win in a situation like this. I was afraid because he was an actor that the people might believe his bad theatrics. I am pleased to see the justice system did its job properly."

Malil faces 21 years to life behind bars.
