CLEVELAND -- Funeral arrangements have been made for a beloved Cleveland Clinic nurse who was killed in downtown Cleveland over the weekend.

Services for Aliza Sherman, 53, of Beachwood, will be held Thursday at 2 p.m. at Berkowitz-Kumin-Bookatz Memorial Chapel, located at 1985 South Taylor Road in Cleveland Heights.

She is survived by her four children.

Police say Sherman had just stepped out of the revolving door in front of 55 Erieview Plaza around 5:30 Sunday night, when she was attacked.

Frantic 911 calls followed, with one man saying to the dispatcher: “It’s bad. There’s a lady who was attacked, and there’s blood everywhere.”

Sherman was rushed to MetroHealth Medical Center, where she later died.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office on Wednesday said she was stabbed 11 times.

Meanwhile, homicide detectives are reviewing surveillance video from the Galleria, where Sherman was seen leaving her divorce attorney's office. The couple was due in court for a proceeding that Tuesday, court records show.

Officials have not yet said what the video contains.

No one has been arrested.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Cleveland Police Homicide Unit at (216) 623-5464.
