A military court hearing is about to get underway for a U.S. Marine accused of killing a prostitute.
The general court-martial for Master Sgt. Nathaniel Cosby will start Monday at Marine Corps Base Hawaii.
Cosby is accused of killing 29-year-old Ivanice “Ivy” Harris and dumping her body near Yokohama bay last May.
A hearing last September revealed key details of the investigation, including surveillance video that showed Cosby meeting Harris outside Kelley O’Neil’s pub in Waikiki. Hotel surveillance video also showed Harris getting into an elevator, and Cosby rolling a large duffle bag out and putting it into an SUV. Investigators later found forensic evidence inside the bag.
Cosby faces several charges, including unpremedidated murder, obstructing justice and attempting to patronize a prostitute.
He continues to be held at the Joint Brig Miramar – Detachment Pearl Harbor Brig on Ford Island.
