HONOLULU — A trial date has been scheduled for the court-martial of a Marine accused of killing a prostitute who was visiting Hawaii.

The Marine Corps announced Thursday that Master Sgt. Nathaniel Cosby’s trial is scheduled for the week of April 21.

Cosby will face a general court-martial in the death of Ivanice Harris, of Las Vegas.

Honolulu police say Cosby is seen on surveillance footage meeting Harris outside a Waikiki bar and the two were seen kissing in the elevator of a hotel.

Police said Cosby was later seen pulling a large duffel bag and loading it into the back of a sport utility vehicle.

Harris’ body was found in a remote area more than 30 miles west of Waikiki. Originally from Oregon, she was in Hawaii celebrating her 29th birthday.
