Malil has been arrested, accused of stabbing Kendra Beebe more than 20 times at her home in San Diego while her two children were also at home.
Officials have reportedly told local news station KNSD-TV that Malil found Beebe with another man and began attacking her.
And Charleton Lee, who tried to stop Beebe from bleeding to death, tells the station, “Her chin was almost entirely cut off. She had a huge gash in her arm that looked like a really deep wound that was bleeding profusely.”
Beebe survived the attack and is being treated in the hospital. An unnamed man, who tried to intervene, was stabbed in the hand.
Malil is being held at the San Diego County Detention Center.
