Zeta to confront 'stalker'

Jul 28 2004

The Western Mail

 

CATHERINE Zeta-Jones is due to come face to face in court today with a woman accused of stalking and threatening to kill her.

Ms Zeta-Jones will appear as a witness in the case of Dawnette Knight, an unemployed woman accused of 26 stalking offences against the actress from Swansea.

A court in Los Angeles heard on Monday that Knight, 32, allegedly made the threats in letters to the Swansea-born Chicago star's father-in-law, film legend Kirk Douglas.

Detective Teresa Garrett told Los Angeles Superior Court an "obituary-style" letter was sent to Kirk Douglas, father of Zeta-Jones's husband Michael.

Ms Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas are expected to take the stand as a judge decides if there is enough evidence to order Knight to stand trial.

Ms Garrett said,

"She was very afraid for herself and her family."

Police also said death threats were phoned to a Bermuda hotel, where Michael Douglas had a financial interest.
