Zeta-Jones to face woman 'stalker'
Catherine Zeta-Jones, the Oscar-winning actress, is due to come face-to-face in court with a woman accused of stalking and threatening to kill her.
Zeta-Jones will appear in the case of Dawnette Knight, an unemployed woman accused of 26 stalking offences against the Swansea actress.
A court in Los Angeles was told on Monday that Knight, 32, allegedly made the threats in letters to the Chicago star's father-in-law, film legend Kirk Douglas.
Det Teresa Garrett told Los Angeles Superior Court that an "obituary style" letter was sent to Kirk Douglas, father of Zeta-Jones's husband Michael.
Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas are expected to take the stand as a judge decides whether there is enough evidence to order Knight to stand trial.
Det Garrett told the court that as the letters grew "more and more threatening", Zeta-Jones became "very upset" and "at a loss for words".
Police also said two death threats against Zeta-Jones were phoned into a hotel in Bermuda, where Michael Douglas had a financial interest.
The first call came on March 18 from a woman who said to tell Douglas "we are going to kill his wife, kill that bitch".
Knight has already apologised for sending letters to the Douglases.
In a letter sent last month, she said she was a "confused young woman", obsessed with Michael Douglas. Knight, who was arrested on June 3, is in custody on bail of £600,000.
