CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The divorce attorney accused of lying to police during the murder investigation of his client, Aliza Sherman, pleaded not guilty in court Friday.

Gregory Moore was indicted on a lengthy list of charges, including tampering with evidence, obstructing official business, forgery and telecommunications fraud.

Moore was issued a $5,000 personal bond.

The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office allege that Moore was unprepared for Sherman's divorce trial, which was set to begin the day after she was killed.

Sherman, 53, was stabbed on March 24, 2013 outside the attorney's office near the Galleria at Erieview. A month later, Cleveland police released surveillance video of a person of interest, but that person was never identified.

The attorney told police he sent text messages to Sherman before and after her murder from his office, but prosecutors said evidence shows he was not in the building.

At Moore's arraignment Friday, Sherman's closest friends said they believe this is the beginning of finally uncovering what happened.

"We're going to let the system do its course, and we got to our first step today," said Sherman's friend, Mary Feuer.
