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.

Green, 40, was arrested at his home in a suburb of Green Bay, Wisconsin, and charged with physical abuse of a child and disorderly conduct after a neighbor called police when the girl fled his home, police said in papers filed in Brown County Circuit Court. The former National Football League star running back told responding officers that he struck the girl and shoved her late on Sunday after a day-long dispute over household chores, police said.
