BOSTON (AP) -- A German citizen who calls himself Clark Rockefeller has pleaded not guilty to charges related to the kidnapping of his 7-year-old daughter off a Boston street in July.
Investigators say Rockefeller is really Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, who has been living under aliases since coming to the United States in 1978.
Gerhartsreiter was arraigned Monday on charges of parental kidnapping, assault and battery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon -- a motor vehicle -- and giving a false name to police.
Authorities also have identified Gerhartsreiter as a "person of interest" in the 1985 disappearance of a California couple.
