Stalker infatuated with Douglas, she writes Zeta-Jones

July 1, 2004


A woman who has pleaded not guilty to felony charges for stalking actress Catherine Zeta-Jones has written a letter of apology.

Dawnette Knight, 32, in an undated letter addressed to the actress and her father-in-law, Kirk Douglas, said she wants ''to apologize for any distress I have caused you and your families.''

Knight, who is being held on $1 million bail, said she would ''have never done anyone any harm and would never harm anyone,'' but also acknowledged an infatuation with Zeta-Jones' actor husband.

''I was a confused young woman infatuated with Michael Douglas and have not rational explanations for my actions,'' her letter said. Knight asked for forgiveness so that she can return to college and finish her studies in child psychology.

Investigators said they were able to trace several threatening letters and phone calls to Knight, including one to Austria where Zeta-Jones was filming ''Ocean's Twelve.'' Knight was arrested June 3 at her Beverly Hills apartment and charged with one count of stalking and 24 counts of criminal threats, officials said.

If convicted, her sentence could range from probation to 19 years in prison. AP
