An "infatuated" woman charged with stalking Catherine Zeta Jones has written the actress a letter of apology.

Dawnette Knight, who has said she is obsessed with Michael Douglas, was arrested in Beverly Hills, California, last month.

She is charged with stalking, making numerous calls and writing threatening letters to the Intolerable Cruelty star.

Knight's lawyer Richard Herman said she had written to Zeta Jones, describing herself as a "confused young woman infatuated with Michael Douglas."

He said she apologised for any distress she had caused, adding "it would be a wonderful good deed if you would all forgive me."

Mr Herman said Knight would never have harmed the actress, Douglas or her two young children.

He said: "The worst thing she has ever been accused of was killing her ex-boyfriend's goldfish and she says she's innocent of that."

Knight faces a preliminary hearing next month. If eventually convicted she faces anywhere from probation to 19 years jail.
