Event planned to mark first Ohio woman's slaying

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Family and friends are gathering for a memorial to remember a woman whose fatal broad-daylight stabbing on a downtown Cleveland street remains unsolved one year later.

Police said 53-year-old Aliza Sherman was stabbed 11 times on the afternoon of March 24, 2013, outside her divorce attorney's office downtown. The Cleveland Clinic fertility nurse and mother of four still had her purse, and her SUV was parked nearby.

The only evidence was from a nearby surveillance camera that showed a person dressed in black running from the scene.

The group Justice for Aliza plans a memorial service at 5 p.m. Monday near where the crime occurred.

A reward is still being offered for information that could lead to solving the case.
