METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) - Saints quarterback Drew Brees talked about why he and his wife Brittany went to court Tuesday to sit in during some of the testimony.
"Listen, I can't imagine what the process is like for Racquel and the whole Smith family. So for us to be able to be there for her, to show our support for her and hopefully give her some strength as she goes through this process, we felt like that was important," Brees said. "I don't know how long that process is going to take, but I know the judge and jury will see the evidence and then whatever the decision is made as far as what type of justice will be served, then that's something that will be dealt with at that time."
Smith was killed by Cardell Hayes on April 9 in the Lower Garden District after a road rage incident.
