In a Vista, California courtroom, Malil, 45, said he didn't know it was her at the time of the stabbing, and stabbed her out of self defense. He says he went to girlfriend Kendra Beebe's home on August 10, 2008 and it "wasn't my intention of killing anybody or hurting anybody."

While on the stand, Malil said:

    "I'm sorry. I had no idea. I saw the pictures [of the stab 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."

Malil's trial will continue through next week. As for the cross-examination, it's set to start next Monday.

The actor has pleaded not guilty to charges of premeditated attempted murder, residential burglary and assault with a deadly weapon. If Malil is convicted, he could face 21 years to life in prison.
