Zeta-Jones Threat Woman Fit For Trial

A woman accused of threatening to kill actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is mentally fit to stand trial says a psychiatrist.

Unemployed Dawnette Knight allegedly sent threatening messages to the Welsh star saying she would "feed her to the dogs".

Knight underwent psychiatric tests after taking a suspected overdose before an earlier court appearance.

Dr Kal Sharma told Knight's lawyer Richard Herman that he concluded she was fit to stand trial.

Mr Herman said he would be submitting a full written report but he declared his findings to a court in Los Angeles.

Knight will next face Judge John Riley at Los Angeles Superior Court on September 8.

She was arrested on June 3 at her Beverley Hills apartment and is charged with one count of stalking and 24 counts of making criminal threats.

If found guilty she could face a jail term of 19 years.
