NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Cardell Hayes, the 29-year-old tow truck driver convicted of manslaughter in the shooting death of retired NFL player Will Smith last April, was sentenced to 25 years in prison, a Louisiana judge ruled on Thursday.

Smith was killed following a vehicle collision last April in New Orleans.
