Blake Witness Faces Agonising Wait And Death Threats

LATEST: The woman who has given actor ROBERT BLAKE a sight of permanent freedom is now fearing for her life - after being told she'll have to testify for his defence in February (04).

DIANE MATTSON was a caretaker for MARLON BRANDO when she claims she heard his son CHRISTIAN talking to two stuntmen about killing Blake's wife BONNY LEE BAKLEY - suggesting somebody "ought to put a bullet" through her head.

And now Mattson's testimony will be heard as part of the high-profile trial next year - for which Blake will stand accused of murdering his wife - and she's convinced Christian Brando will try to kill her.

The former maid was hoping she could record an advance testimony, but the motion was turned down in court yesterday (10JUL03) and now she'll have to face the court on 9 February.

Her lawyer BRIAN OXMAN admits his client now fears for her life.

He says, "She is terrified. She sat at the back of the courtroom and she said, 'Oh my god, oh my god, what am I going to do? How am I ever going to survive?'

"She has been threatened by Christian Brando. He said he was going to kill her and I have no reason to doubt that he is going to carry out that threat."
