Ex-wife charged with murdering National Basketball Association player Lorenzen Wright

A news conference Saturday morning detailed the charges against Sherra Wright-Robinson, the ex-wife of slain National Basketball Association star Lorenzen Wright.

Deborah Marion, Lorenzen's mother, spoke with FOX13 late Friday night. The Shelby County sheriff's office said they are working on her extradition to Tennessee.

The indictment alleges the conspiracy by Turner and Sherra Wright began in April of 2010 and that both were at Callis Cutoff and Hacks Cross Road where Lorenzen Wright's body was later found. I let people do what they're good at doing and I'm just gonna do what I'm good at doing'.

The alleged murder weapon was recovered from a MS lake in November, and the recent testimony of Billy R. Turner, a former deacon at the church Wright attended, led to the arrest of his ex-wife.

Turner is being held on $1million bail. He's murdered. But you'll find in the book that so many different factors had killed him already before he actually physically died. The summer heat caused his body to decompose quickly further hampering investigators.

An autopsy report showed bullet fragments were lodged in Wright's skull, chest and right forearm.

The Memphis Bucks star was last seen alive on July 18, 2010-when he was leaving Sherra Wright's home. They didn't send a patrol officer or relay the information to Memphis police until days later.

She hadn't held a job in 17 years and was almost $3 million in debt, Mathes said.

She said he left her home in a vehicle with a person she could not identify.

Dispatchers didn't alert police because they weren't sure it came from their jurisdiction.

Wright's mother filed a missing-person report with Collierville police on July 22, 2010.

"We looked through this case and we did one thing, we followed the evidence and the evidence led us to Billy Turner and Sherra Wright", Memphis Police Major Darren Goods said during a news conference Saturday.

Memphis Police Director Michael Rallings answered "yes" when asked if Sherra Wright and Billy Turner tried to kill Lorenzen Wright in the past.

Wright averaged 8.0 points and 6.4 rebounds in 778 games in his playing days with the Los Angeles Clippers, Grizzlies, Atlanta Hawks, Sacramento Kings and Cleveland Cavaliers.
