Zeta Jones drove stalker to suicide attemptAdd to Clippings

LOS ANGELES: Hollywood star Catherine Zeta-Jones has driven her alleged stalker to attempt suicide, the suspect's lawyer claimed, as a US judge ordered his client to undergo psychiatric tests.

The startling claim yesterday by the attorney of Dawnette Knight, accused of making death threats against the Oscar-winning actress, came as a judge suspended criminal proceedings against Knight pending an evaluation of her mental state.

"What's happened is that this case has turned into Hollywood against Dawnette Knight, and it's not a fair fight," Knight's lawyer Richard Herman told reporters after a hearing in Los Angeles.

"What's actually happened is that Catherine Zeta-Jones has driven Dawnette Knight to attempt suicide, and the real blood is on her hands," he said two days after Zeta-Jones testified against Knight.

Herman suggested that Zeta-Jones, the wife of Hollywood icon Michael Douglas, and the media had waged a campaign against the 32-year-old Knight, leading her to take an overdose of barbiturates in jail on Wednesday night.

"What we have seen instead of forgiveness is a campaign of vilification in the media which is both mean-spirited and vicious," Herman said.

Prosecutor Debra Archuleta slammed Herman's claim as "inappropriate" and said she was "shocked and outraged that the victim in this case, Catherine Zeta-Jones, is being portrayed in this manner."
