Louisiana district Judge Camille Buras sen­tenced 29-year-old Cardell Hayes to 25 years for man­slaugh­ter and 15 for at­tempted man­slaugh­ter. He had faced up to 60 years if the max­i­mum sen­tences were to be served con­sec­u­tively. Hayes re­peat­edly shot Smith in the back as the men ar­gued in the street the night of April 9, 2016. The con­fronta­tion be­gan when Smith’s SUV ap­peared to bump Hayes’ Hum­mer. Hayes then fol­lowed the Smiths and slammed into them.
