Slain former National Basketball Association player's ex-wife charged and arrested for 2010 murder

Slain former NBA player's ex-wife charged and arrested for 2010 murder

Law enforcement officials did not say when she would be extradited to Memphis, where she was charged with first-degree murder in Lorenzen Wright's death, a news release from the Shelby County District Attorney's Office said.

A court spokesperson said as of Sunday night 8 media outlets requested a camera for Sherra Wright's appearance, proof this story crosses over into both the news and sports world, with national interest in this murder case from the west coast to the Mid-South.

Turner is being held on $1million bail.

During his arraignment, Marion shouted at him: 'How could you have murdered my son?' Gen. Amy Weirich talks during a press conference about the arrest of Sherra Wright-Robinson. In 2015, SI investigated and asked Wright's ex-wife if she had any part in the murder. Wright's ex-wife comes up multiple times in the piece and was even interviewed. Wright, who was an #NBA player for 13 seasons, was found decomposing and shot to death near Memphis in 2010 - almost two weeks after he was reported missing, according to several news agencies.

The body was found in a field near some woods in the height of summer, complicating the investigation because evidence had likely deteriorated in the heat. An autopsy report later showed that bullet fragments were in the former basketball player's skull, chest and forearm. Wright's playing weight was around 225 pounds.

Before he left, She said she overheard her ex-husband on the telephone telling someone that he was going to 'flip something for $110,000, ' the document said.

Alas, Harry attended "The Last Jedi" premiere in London earlier this week with his brother, Prince William , as his plus-one. He attended this year's match and presented a trophy to the victor , Arsenal - but will likely be otherwise engaged in 2018.

Memphis authorities did not share a motive for the murder but they said that the duo tried to kill Wright in the past.

He apparently called 911 early on July 19, 2010, but officers were not notified because the dispatchers could not pinpoint where the call was coming from.

The case had gone cold up until last month when investigators found a murder weapon at the bottom of a lake in Walnut, Mississippi, leading to the indictment of Billy R. Turner two weeks ago on a first-degree murder charge.

Wright's mother filed a missing-person report with Collierville police on July 22, 2010. He played for five teams over 13 seasons as a forward and center.

Former NBA players and friends including Anfernee Hardaway and Elliot Perry attended a memorial service for Wright in the days after his body was found.
