A woman pleaded no contest Friday to stalking and threatening Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Dawnette Knight, 33, entered the plea to one felony count of stalking and three felony counts of making criminal threats.

Superior Court Judge David Mintz ordered Knight to be evaluated for 90 days by the state Department of Corrections to determine if she is suitable for probation or should go to prison.

Knight could receive up to five years in prison when she returns to court for sentencing in June.

She was originally charged with stalking and 24 counts of making criminal threats between Oct. 2, 2003, and May 21, 2004. Twenty-one of the latter counts were dismissed.
