Bristolville ER nurse pleads not guilty in murder plot

Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - A Cleveland Clinic emergency room nurse has pleaded not guilty in an alleged $10,000 murder-for-hire plot that unsuccessfully targeted a woman in a home ownership dispute.

Twenty-three-year-old Andrew Martin of Bristolville was arraigned Monday before Cleveland federal Judge Christopher Boyko. The judge ordered Martin locked up to await trial Feb. 7.

Authorities say a man who had been treated in the ER tipped off police that he had been asked by a nurse if he "ever killed anyone."

The clinic suspended Martin without pay when he was arrested last month.

One of his defense attorneys, Christopher Thomarios, declined comment after the arraignment.
