Judge denies new trial for killer of NFL's Will Smith

NEW ORLEANS — A Louisiana judge denied a new trial for the killer of a retired New Orleans Saints star, clearing the way Wednesday for Cardell Hayes to be sentenced to up to 60 years in prison for shooting Will Smith and wounding his wife.

State District Judge Camille Buras rejected numerous defense arguments for a new trial, including the claim of a newly found witness who contradicted all trial evidence by saying he heard more than two weapons fired the night Smith was killed.
