DNA Laddering and Apoptosis

Hello,

I have a quick question regarding the DNA fragmentation which takes place 
during the intermediate phase of apoptosis. What "exactly" causes the 
discrete banding pattern and why are there even increments of DNA bands; 
ie., why don't you get a smear.

Thank you
