CATHERINE ZETA-JONES HAS A STALKER: The big screen’s leading lady has a leading lady of her own.

(Jun. 17, 2004) *It is our sincere hope that Mrs. Jones wasn’t meeting some sista's man at the café everyday at 6:30, but we’ll let you make the call on this one.

A woman has pleaded not guilty to felony charges that she had been stalking actress Catherine Zeta-Jones by calling and sending her threatening letters, authorities said Wednesday.

Dawnette Knight was arrested in her Beverly Hills apartment June 3, and charged with one count of stalking and 24 counts of criminal threats dating to Jan. 2, 2003, said Sheriff's Lt. Joe Impellizeri.

She was arraigned last Thursday and is being held on $1 million bail.

"We felt she was a flight risk," said Impellizeri, adding Knight is not employed in the area and has no family ties.

Zeta-Jones' staff notified the sheriff's department around February that the 34-year-old Oscar-winning star of "Chicago" was receiving threatening letters, Impellizeri said. In addition, he said sheriff's officials were able to trace several letters and phone calls to Knight, including one to Austria where Zeta-Jones was filming "Ocean's Twelve."

"The letters and phone calls became more violent and specific," said Impellizeri, who declined to elaborate.

Jones doesn’t seem to know who the woman is or what connection she might have to her. A statement released Wednesday by Zeta-Jones' publicist, Cece Yorke, said that the actress and her family were "greatly relieved that the suspect is in custody."

Knight, 32, is set to return to court June 29 for a preliminary hearing, said district attorney spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons. If convicted, she could face anywhere from probation to 19 years in prison.
