Conviction: Man sentenced to life in prison for murder of Mylus Mondy, 48

September 4, 2009 | 11:17 pm

McKenzie Carl Bryant, a 25-year old black man, was sentenced to life in prison today for the murder of Mylus Mondy, a 48-year old black man, at a Westside ATM on March 9, 2008.

Surveillance image released by authorities Bryant was sentenced to life without parole, plus 56 additional years in prison, according to the L.A. County District attorney's office.

A Superior Court jury deliberated for about a day before finding Bryant guilty in June of first-degree murder for the killing and attempted robbery of Mondy, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection employee who was off-duty at the time of the assault. 

According to police, Mondy pulled into a Bank of America parking lot in the 6600 block of  La Cienega Westway in Westchester and walked up to an ATM. At the time, Bryant was robbing a customer at the next machine. Bryant then turned his attention to Mondy, hitting him with his gun and demanding money. Fearing for his life, Mondy ran;  the gunman chased after him while firing. Mondy was hit in the back and was mortally wounded.

Mondy helped repair the fence of a co-worker's home and installed blinds in an office when he was off duty, Espinoza said.

Too bad he didnt get the death penalty.

At least Mr. Bryant will be spending the rest of his pathetic life in prison.

Officer Monday was well liked and respected by all of his Law enforcement peers at LAX. His life taken by a thug attempting to steal a handful of change. Officer Monday will
be missed by all who knew him and those he served.

This low life needs to be put away for life and at hard labor if at all possible.

I'm so glad to see and hear that this low life coward will never again see the outside of a prison again, and now he could expirence life behide bars with someone that's a lot bigger, badder and tougher than he is, so I hope he show his tough man skills now, and see just how bad he is in scumbag paradise complete with a spacious 12x8 cell and a bunk bed that he haven't slept in since a young kid, so I know he will enjoy. Happy life tough guy!!, don't drop the soap

Be glad that you're still living. After reading some of the previous comments from 2008 when this first occured you're safer in jail than on the streets. However, i'm glad justice was served and you can live everyday thinking about what you did!!

I agree with everyone else's comments, he is a scumbag and a coward. He killed this good hard working man for some chump change. He's a coward because he shot the man in the back as he was running away.

i remember how disappointed i was to hear of this incident and the idiotic post from one person who got their facts wrong and blamed mr. mondy for his murder. i am overjoyed to hear this dog fart has been caught and his female accomplice should do no less time because she was with him during the robbery of the first person. i pray neither of these animals see the light of day ever again! lock 'em up and make our communities safer! when you have dna, execute!

Scum of the earth, indeed. My only question is why should our tax dollars be spent to house and feed such a worthless savage beast? Why? He deserves to be put down like a dog.

It would be nice if the Times would publish Carl Bryant's and Enjoli McClendon's pictures. I also want to know their criminal records.
