RondoNumbaNine was scheduled to be sentenced for his role in Javan Boyd’s murder on Tuesday, June 14. But that date has been postponed until July 5, according to Cook County inmate records.
Cdai, born Courtney Ealy, was sentenced to 38 years in prison on Monday, May 9 for the crime.
Rondo, 19, and Cdai, 21, were found guilty of the Feb. 22, 2014 slaying in March.
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.”
Rondo’s attorney, David Hill, told the Chicago Tribune in a phone interview last week his client had been demanding trial for more than four months.
