Zeta-Jones stalker to be sentenced

14:40 AEST Sat Jun 4 2005

AP - A woman who pleaded no contest to stalking and threatening actress Catherine Zeta-Jones will be sentenced next month.

A judge on Friday ordered Dawnette Knight, 33, to appear for sentencing on July 8. She faces up to five years in prison.

Knight pleaded in February to one felony count of stalking and three felony counts of making criminal threats.

She was accused of sending threatening and violent letters to acquaintances of the actress, including Zeta-Jones' agent and her husband, actor Michael Douglas.

Knight, who was arrested June 3 last year at her Beverly Hills home, allegedly apologized in another letter, claiming she had been in love with Douglas.
