Prosecutors say that was the day Malil stabbed Beebe with two knives while chasing her in and around her San Marcos home as her two children slept.
A man with Beebe at the time grabbed one knife but Malil found another and continued the attack until a neighbor disarmed him, prosecutors said.
Malil previously pleaded not guilty to one count of attempted murder, with a special circumstance of premeditation and one count of personal use of a knife and inflicting great bodily injury. He faces life in prison if convicted.
During a Superior Court hearing Friday, a judge reduced his bail from $10 million to $3 million. Malil's attorney, Steve Meiser, argued that the higher figure was unreasonable and that his Indian-born client was not a flight risk.
Malil has been jailed since Aug. 11.
Beebe, 35, suffered deep wounds to her lungs and throat but prosecutors said she was expected to recover.
Malil played a co-worker, Haziz, to comedian Steve Carell's title character in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin." He has appeared on dozens of TV shows, including "NYPD Blue" and "Scrubs."
