ZETA-JONES STALKER FIT FOR TRIAL: Psychiatrist says she’s able to assist her own defense.


(Aug. 17, 2004) *Despite an alleged suicide attempt via sleeping pills, Catherine Zeta-Jones’ stalker Dawnette Knight has been found mentally competent to assist in her own defense following a psychiatric examination ordered by the court.

Knight is accused of stalking and threatening the life of the actress because of an obsession with Zeta-Jones’ husband, actor Michael Douglas. A judge last month suspended criminal proceedings against Knight pending a psych exam to determine whether she was fit to answer the charges following an alleged overdose of sleeping pills.

Knight's defense lawyer Richard Herman told a court Monday that mental health expert Kal Sharma had told him he felt the suspect was mentally competent.

The 33-year-old Knight is now due back at the Mental Health Courthouse on September 8, a week earlier than previously scheduled. On September 9, the hearing to determine if she must stand trial for the charges will resume.

The woman faces a stalking charge and 24 counts of making criminal threats against Zeta-Jones.
