The US Supreme Court has overturned the manslaughter conviction for the man who shot and killed New Orleans Saints star Will Smith in 2016.
Cardall Hayes was convicted of attempted manslaughter in the death of Will Smith and the wounding of Smith’s wife. Supreme Court convicted Hayes 10-2 on the manslaughter charges.
Hayes claims he shot in self-defense. He claims that Smith pulled a gun and pointed it at him. That is when Hayes fired the gun. Smith was reportedly drunk at the time and it was all over a road rage incident.
Smith was a leader on the Saints team that won the Super Bowl in 2010.
Hayes may not be off the hook yet, attorneys for the state can try him again at the State level.
