Convicted killer stabbed during fight at prison annex

JESSUP --A 22-year-old convicted killer was stabbed yesterday afternoon after a fight with another murderer in a recreation area at Maryland House of Correction Annex in Jessup, authorities reported.

Jeremiah M. Jones of Bladensburg -- imprisoned since he was 17, and serving a life term -- was in serious condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center last night.

Prison officials said Jones fought with and allegedly was stabbed by Rodney E. Solomon, 35, who is serving life plus 60 years in the 1992 Howard County carjacking death of Pam Basu.

Jones is serving a life term for fatally shooting a Bladensburg couple during a fight about drugs.

Solomon refused treatment after the fight, a Division of Correction spokesman said.

Lawsuit challenges policy banning children's jail visits

PRINCE FREDERICK -- The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland filed a federal lawsuit yesterday challenging a Calvert County Detention Center policy prohibiting visits by anyone younger than age 16.

Inmates are denied visits from their children -- even with adult supervision. Most detention centers in Maryland, including state prisons, allow visitation by minors accompanied by adults.

The case was filed on behalf of an inmate, Lance Brady, 33, who is being held on burglary charges.
