Zeta-Jones will give evidence

ZETA-JONES IN COURT
Catherine Zeta-Jones is to come face-to-face with a woman accused of stalking and threatening to kill her.   

Zeta-Jones will appear in court as a witness in the case against Dawnette Knight, unemployed, who faces allegations of 26 stalking offences against the Swansea-born actress.

Knight,32, allegedly made the threats in letters to the Chicago star's father-in-law, film legend Kirk Douglas.     

Detective Teresa Garrett has told Los Angeles Superior Court that an "abituary style" letter was received by Kirk Douglas, father of her husband Michael.     

Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas are expected to take the stand.     

The judge will decide whether there is enough evidence to order Knight to stand trial.     

The court has heard that the letters grew more and more threatening and Zeta Jones became extremely upset.     

Police said two death threats against Zeta-Jones were also phoned to a hotel in Bermuda where Michael Douglas had a financial interest.     

Knight could face a maximum 19-year jail term if convicted of the crimes alleged to have been carried out between January 2003 and May 2004.
