Will Smith's widow: 'You didn't have to do that to my baby'

The widow of slain New Orleans Saints star Will Smith has confronted her husband's killer, telling him as a jury looked on that ``You didn't have to do that to my baby.''  

Racquel Smith then showed jurors the gunshot wounds to her legs, suffered just before her husband was killed.  

Tuesday's testimony came on the second day of the trial of Cardell Hayes, charged with murder in the death of Smith and attempted murder for shooting the NFL star's wife.  

Hayes' defense says the Smiths were the aggressors in a confrontation following a traffic accident last April.  

Raquel Smith, however, said she thought she had defused the argument and was walking with her husband away from Hayes when she heard two gunshots -- the ones that hit her -- followed by the series of shots that killed her husband.
