PORTLAND, Ore. » A federal grand jury has indicted eight Portland men accused of transporting women across state lines to engage in prostitution.

One of the men is Mark "Meezilini" Miles, who is accused of taking Ivanice "Ivy" Harris to Hawaii last spring. The 29-year-old Harris was killed during the visit, and a Marine is awaiting trial on a murder charge.

Harris was last seen outside a Waikiki bar May 16. Her body was found by a family four days later in kiawe brush near Yoko­hama Bay on the Wai­anae Coast.

The indictments unsealed Monday stem from an FBI-led enforcement called "Operation Traffic Stop." Besides Hawaii, prosecutors say the prostitutes were taken to Alaska, Idaho, Minnesota and Nevada.

Also charged were Steven "Flawless" Huffman, Jorge "Baby Slim" Ortega, Jermaine "Chocolate" Hankins, Michael "Mackin Mike" Willis, DeShawne "The Don" Howard, Samuel "Sammega" Howard and Camillio "Killa" Carradine.
