Military jury recommends life for Marine convicted of killing prostitute

KANEOHE, HAWAII — A military jury has recommended that a Marine who killed a prostitute in his Hawaii hotel room serve a life sentence and be dishonorably discharged.

The jury’s recommendation on Saturday will be reviewed by the Marines commander and the court-martial’s convening authority, who will either agree with the sentence or reduce the penalty.

Marine Master Sgt. Nathaniel Cosby was convicted Thursday of murder, obstruction of justice and patronizing a prostitute.

He admitted to killing Ivanice “Ivy” Harris in May last year, but his lawyers argued it was in self-defense.

Cosby was in Hawaii on a temporary assignment from Japan at the time of the killing. He remains in confinement at the brig on Ford Island.

Harris’ family said they were grateful to investigators and prosecutors for bringing Cosby to justice.
