Cleveland (AP) A man has pleaded not guilty to a charge accusing him of e-mailing an Indiana teenager about conducting a Columbine-style attack on two schools.

Lee Billi of the Cleveland suburb of Lakewood made no comment today during the hearing through a video hookup from jail. His attorney entered the plea on a charge of conspiracy to commit murder.

A Cuyahoga County common pleas judge set bond at $250,000.

Police in Lakewood say they don't know how far along the 33-year-old and an unnamed 16-year-old from Indiana were in the alleged plan. Authorities say the two exchanged e-mails on and
discussed mass murders at the teen's school near South Bend, Indiana, and at another location.
