By Helen Freund NEW ORLEANS, Dec 6 (Reuters) - The shooting death of retired NFL player Will Smith was an "execution," Louisiana prosecutors said in court on Tuesday, opening a high-profile murder trial in which the accused is seeking immunity under a "stand your ground" state law. Cardell Hayes, 29, is accused of gunning down Smith and injuring his wife in what prosecutors describe as a road rage incident. Celebrity athletes including Saints quarterback Drew Brees crowded into a courtroom to hear attorneys' opening statements in a case where the defense is arguing self-defense.
