Man convicted in Basu's death seeks transcript for appeal

December 14, 1993

The attorney for one of two men convicted in the carjacking death of Pam Basu asked the Maryland Court of Special Appeals yesterday for a trial transcript to prepare an appeal of the conviction.

Bernard Miller was sentenced to life plus 10 years for the death of Mrs. Basu, of Savage, in September 1992. Mrs. Basu was dragged to her death when her arm became entangled in a seat belt when she was forced from her car. She was trying to free her 22-month-old daughter, who was in the car with Miller and Rodney Eugene Solomon. Solomon was sentenced to life without parole.

Under Maryland law, defendants must pay for transcripts unless they were represented by a public defender. Attorney Laurack Bray said that he volunteered his services and that Miller can't afford to buy a transcript.
