KANEOHE BAY, Hawaii (AP) - A forensic pathologist testifying at a military hearing of a Marine accused of killing a Portland prostitute says she was strangled.

Hawaii News Now (http://ow.ly/pg41A ) reports William Goodhue said Thursday Ivy Harris died because she didn't have enough oxygen flowing to her brain.

Originally from Oregon, Harris was visiting Hawaii from Las Vegas with her pimp.

Master Sgt. Nathaniel Cosby is charged with murder, patronizing a prostitute and other charges.

Defense attorney Lt. Col. Clay Plummer says the evidence will not prove his client guilty when all the facts are before the court.

An Article 32 hearing to determine whether Cosby should be court-martialed was held at Marine Corps Base Hawaii on Wednesday and Thursday.

Harris' body was found May 20 in a remote area about 40 miles west of Waikiki.
