A WOMAN who was obsessed with Michael Douglas has admitted threatening Hollywood wife Catherine Zeta Jones.
Dawnette Knight, 33, had denied the charges but entered a plea deal in a Los Angeles court, admitting one count of stalking and three of criminal threats.
She stood accused of sending violent letters to the Swansea actress' 60-year-old husband.
One letter said: "We are going to slice her up like meat on a bone and feed her to the dogs."
Catherine, 35, said: "I've never in my life had anything or had anyone say anything to me so satanic."
Knight, who has been in custody since last year, allegedly apologised in another letter, claiming she had been in love with Douglas.
The plea deal avoids more showdowns between the former student and the Oscar winner.
Hours after the last time they came face-to-face during a pre-trial hearing, Knight took an overdose of barbiturates.
It was only after a psychiatric evaluation that it was decided she was fit to stand trial.
On Friday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David Mintz ordered Knight to undergo a 90-day evaluation to deem whether she is suitable for probation.
A sentencing date will be set on June 3 - exactly one year after she was arrested at her Beverly Hills home.
She faces a maximum five years behind bars. The original 25 stalker-related charges, which will now be dropped, carried a maximum 19 years in jail.
Douglas told the court his wife had suffered "all the signs of a nervous breakdown", including fainting spells and breathing difficulties, as a result of the threats.
"She just felt that she was a marked person," he said.
