Ex-Wife Of Lorenzen Wright Arrested, Charged With His Murder

Relatives of slain former NBA player Lorenzen Wright pray during a candlelight vigil in his honor on Thursday

Police in Riverside County, California, arrested Sherra Wright-Robinson Friday night on a warrant in connection to the 2010 killing of her ex-husband, former National Basketball Association player Lorenzen Wright. Lorenzen Wright's mother says she believes Sherra Wright killed her son for money, including a $1 million life insurance policy. Wright was shot multiple times and his body was severely decomposed, according to the Memphis Police Department. "We wanted to investigate it as if it had just happened".

That process led to several recent revelations in a case many expected would turn cold. In November, the Federal Bureau of Investigation found what is believed to be the murder weapon in a lake in Mississippi. Last week, a man named Billy Turner (seen at right above) was arrested in Colliersville, Tennessee, where Wright lived, and charged with first-degree murder in the Wright case. Turner, a landscaper and resident of the Memphis suburb of Collierville, has pleaded not guilty.

This arrest comes ten days after a man accused of killing Wright was arrested in Memphis.

Sherra Wright, 46, has been charged with being a fugitive of justice, first-degree premeditated murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.

Sports Illustrated has since published portions of a previously unreleased video interview with Sherra Wright. You can view the video below.

Sherra Wright-Robinson lives in California and has been taken into custody.

After a pause, she responded, "At first, I'm a wife, then I'm a mother, and then thirdly I'm an author. The law enforcement should do what's best to find who's the killer".

Sherra Wright said in the days following the discovery of her ex-husband's body that she had last seen him the night he disappeared and that he had left to meet with others. The book chronicled the life of a deceitful, philandering basketball player who grows up in MS, moves to Memphis, marries an older woman and becomes a top pro draft pick.

At a press conference Saturday, Memphis Police Director Michael Rallings said Wright-Robinson has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of her ex-husband.
