Cdai was given a new mugshot in state prison. It pictures can say a thousand words, Cdai’s photo would say prison life has taken a toll on him.
Cdai, born Courtney Ealy, was sentenced to 38 years in prison on Monday, May 9, 2016 for the crime. He is currently incarcerated at Menard Correctional Center.
Cdai is eligible for parole on March 5, 2052. His projected discharge date is March 5, 2055.
Cdai is accused of fatally shooting cab driver Javan Boyd on Feb. 22, 2014.
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.”
