Military jury recommends life for convicted Marine

By Associated Press

KANEOHE, Hawaii (AP) 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 acknowledged 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.
