LOS ANGELES, Oct. 4 (UPI) -- A Los Angeles bail hearing Monday for Dawnette Knight, accused of stalking and threatening actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, was delayed until Oct. 13.

Knight, currently being held in $1 million in bail, has pleaded not guilty to one felony count of stalking and 24 counts of making criminal threats, reported KNBC-TV in Los Angeles.

Her attorney, Richard P. Herman, said he is going to ask that his client be released on her own recognizance. "We all know that she's no threat to anyone," he said. "It's real hard to live in L.A. and stalk somebody who lives in Bermuda."

In July, Zeta-Jones testified that receiving letters describing how she would supposedly die as President John F. Kennedy, Manson Family victim Sharon Tate or O.J. Simpson's ex-wife left a left a psychological mark.

"This has affected me and it will affect me the rest of my life," the Welsh actress married to actor Michael Douglas testified. "I felt like a ticking time bomb."
