Hearing Set for Suspect in Former NFL Star's Murder

With work still to do on the autopsy for retired Saints defensive end Will Smith, attorneys in the criminal case against the man charged in his death agreed on Friday to reschedule an evidence hearing. Former semiprofessional football player Cardell Hayes stood and listened quietly on Friday as state District Judge Camille Buras set a evidence hearing for June 1. Attorneys say that they are waiting for the complete autopsy report and for completion of a supplemental police report on Smith's death. Hayes was indicted last month on a second-degree murder charge in Smith's slaying. He has also been indicted on a charge of attempted second-degree murder with Smith's wife suffering injuries in the shooting as well.
