ZETA HATE SUSPECT 'SORRY'
A woman accused of threatening Catherine Zeta Jones has sent her a letter apologising for her behaviour.    

Dawnette Knight wrote to the Oscar-winner and her father-in-law, Kirk Douglas, saying sorry for the distress she had caused and asking for forgiveness.

Knight, who lives in the plush Beverly Hills district of Los Angeles, said she could offer no rational explanation for her actions.    

"It would be a wonderful good deed if you would all forgive me so that I can go back to college to finish my studies in child psychology," she wrote.

The 31-year-old had earlier pleaded not guilty to charges that she bombarded the British actress with a barrage of threatening letters and phone calls.

She remains in custody pending a hearing on July 26 to determine if there is enough evidence to require her to stand trial.    

Knight's defence lawyer said she was "confused and thought she was doing something as a prank".    

"It got taken much too seriously because that's the age we live in," he claimed.    

Police said Knight had made numerous phone calls, most of them death threats, against 33-year-old Zeta Jones.
