A jury will hear statements a former mental patient accused of stalking Uma Thurman made to police.

State Supreme Court Justice Gregory Carro denied a defense motion to exclude the material — including a letter he wrote to the "Kill Bill" actress and e-mails he sent to her father — in which defendant Jack Jordan expresses love for Thurman.

Thurman, who also starred in "Pulp Fiction" and "The Producers," is expected to testify at Jordan's trial, which begins Monday in Manhattan.

Jordan was arrested in October 2007 on misdemeanor charges of stalking and aggravated harassment. He was accused of following and trying to contact Thurman for more than two years.

Prosecutors say Jordan, 37, once tried to get into Thurman's trailer on a Manhattan movie set and appeared several times at her Greenwich Village house.

He also sent her a letter complaining that he had been confined to a mental hospital and was being forced to take medication, and he sent her father four e-mails expressing his love for her, prosecutors said. It wasn't clear how he got the address.

While being questioned in Manhattan, Jordan told detectives that he saw Thurman on a movie theater screen and when their eyes met, he knew they had a connection, that their relationship was meant to be.

Jordan's lawyer, George Vomvolakis, tried to keep the statements out of the trial on the grounds that police illegally obtained them by promising Jordan he could go home as soon as he talked to them about Thurman, 37.

Vomvolakis also argued that if Carro allowed the letter in as evidence, "the jury might think they were doing a disservice to Ms. Thurman if they acquitted him. They would think this is a crazy man," and that she could be in danger.

The judge said the letter and the e-mails were "clearly relevant" to the charges and to whether Jordan made Thurman fearful.

Vomvolakis had said in January he hoped to avoid a trial and work out a plea deal in which Jordan, whom he said was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, would enter a psychiatric treatment program.

Jordan, who's free on $10,000 bail, is a 1994 graduate of the University of Chicago and is a graduate student at Mills College in Oakland, Calif., his attorney said. Jordan now lives in Maryland with his parents.
