HONOLULU (AP) — The Marine Corps said Friday that Master Sgt. Nathaniel Cosby will face a general court-martial in the death of Ivanice Harris, who was visiting Hawaii from Las Vegas.

Honolulu police said Cosby is seen on surveillance footage meeting Harris outside a Waikiki bar, and the two were seen kissing in the elevator of the hotel where he was staying.

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.

An arraignment hearing is scheduled for Nov. 21 at Marine Corps Base Hawaii.
