A Look Inside RondoNumbaNine and Cdai’s Prison: Menard Correctional Center (Photos)

On Tuesday, July 5, RondoNumbaNine was sentenced to 39 years in prison for the 2014 murder of cab driver Javan Boyd. On Thursday, July 7, he was transferred to Menard Correctional Center in Menard, IL to serve his time.

Rondo projected release date is Feb. 24, 2056. He is eligible for parole on Feb. 24, 2053.

Fans were able to get a glimpse of Rondo in Cook County before his transfer.

Cdai, who was sentenced to 38 years in prison on Monday, May 9, is also at Menard Correctional Center. He was transferred to Menard Correctional Center on May 17.

Cdai’s projected release date is March 5, 2055. He is eligible for parole on March 5, 2052.

Rondo, 19, and Cdai, 21, were found guilty of the Feb. 22, 2014 slaying in March.

Menard Correctional Center, located in Chester, IL, opened in March 1878, and is the second oldest prison in Illinois. It has a population of about 3,695 inmates, according to the Illinois Department of Corrections. It is located 347 miles from Chicago, a five and a half-hour drive.

More than half of Menard’s inmates have been convicted of murder, according to a report by John Howard Association of Illinois.

One of Menard’s inmates includes Drew Peterson, a retired police officer whose high-profile killing of his third wife landed him a 38-year sentence in 2013.

In 2014, Menard gained national attention after prisoners staged a hunger strike in protest of their confinement conditions. Prison guards allegedly beat inmate Armando Velasquez due to the strike.

Prosecutors allege Cdai and Rondo were part of a three-car entourage riding through enemy territory looking for revenge due to an earlier altercation with an unnamed party, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Rondo and Cdai allegedly sighted Boyd sitting in his vehicle and pulled their vehicle alongside his.

The two allegedly went to Boyd’s passenger door and asked if he was from the neighborhood. When Boyd replied he was from the neighborhood, Rondo and Cdai opened the passenger door and opened fire, according to the Tribune.

Boyd was reportedly shot seven times in all, including, twice in the back and three times in the leg, according to the Sun Times.

Rondo and Cdai allegedly rushed back to their vehicle and all three vehicles fled the scene.

Cdai is reported to have dropped his cellphone at the scene before he and Rondo returned to their car and the group drove away, prosecutors told DNAinfo. Chicago Housing Authority surveillance cameras reportedly caught the shooting on video. Police also recovered Cdai’s fingerprint on the window of the car.

Cdai and Rondo have been in jail for over two years awaiting trial. The two rappers’ trial has consistently been delayed because the prosecution had a hard time gathering their witnesses.

Prosecutors say this is often an issue in cases that involved “gang slayings.”
