The man who killed retired New Orleans Saints star Will Smith and wounded his wife during a traffic dispute last year was sentenced Thursday to 25 years in prison for manslaughter. His sentence is far less than the maximum prosecutors had called for. Cardell Hayes faced up to 60 years if given consecutive maximum terms for manslaughter and attempted manslaughter. Instead, Judge Camille Buras gave him 15 years for shooting Racquel Smith in the legs, to be served at the same time. Hayes, 29, also will get a year of credit for the time he's already served since shooting one of the city's sports heroes in April 2016.
