The 53-year-old was convicted of the attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon after he was in a jealous rage ten years ago against his former girlfriend Kendra Beebe. He was sentenced to 12 years in prison for crimes in 2010.
Malil appeared on Tuesday at a hearing at Chuckawalla Valley State Prison, where a committee of probation officers upheld an earlier decision to grant him a parole, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
The jury originally found Malil eligible for parole in January 2018, but California Governor Jerry Brown recommended the review of the grant over concerns as Malil's "anger escalated so It was totally out of control and led to such a persistent horror," the report said San Diego Union Tribune.
But the panel once again agreed this week that Malil posed a low risk of violence in the future and did not undo his rallying cry. He will be released in two weeks and will remain under probationary supervision for five years, according to the newspaper. In 2008, Malil stabbed his girlfriend Beebe more than 20 times in the backyard of her home in San Marcos, California. In his first test earlier this year, Malil admitted that a mix of jealousy and alcohol boosted his plans to "annihilate" the victim, Union Tribune reported.
Bebee survived the attack and spoke on Tuesday through videoconference She lives "still in fear." Malil insisted that he be dedicated to his rehabilitation and that he "will never make another sacrifice".
Malil is best known for paying Steve Carrell's co-worker in the 2005 film The 40-Year-Old Virgin. His other films include "NYPD Blue", "Without a Trace" and "Scrubs"
