Brief hearing reveals little in Will Smith case
NEW ORLEANS - A brief hearing in the case of the man charged in the death of retired New Orleans Saints defensive end Will Smith has ended with little new revealed about the case.
Prosecutors and defense lawyers for suspect Cardell Hayes agreed on a new hearing date of June 1.
Attorneys said they are still waiting for a final autopsy report on Smith, as well as a supplemental police report still in the works.
Hayes was indicted last month on a second-degree murder charge in Smith's slaying.
Police have said the shooting occurred after Hayes's Hummer hit Smith's Mercedes SUV from behind on the night of April 9.
Hayes' defense lawyer, John Fuller, has said Hayes was not the aggressor and that a witness saw a gun in Smith's possession.
