Ex-wife of Lorenzen Wright charged with murder in 2010 death

Lorenzen Wright’s ex-wife arrested on charges related to his murder

Police charged Wright with first degree murder, conspiracy and criminal attempt first degree murder.

Though published as fiction, her book, "Mr. Tell Me Anything", the story 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, bears an uncanny resemblance to the real-life story of Lorenzen and Sherra Wright. The next morning, local police received a 911 call from his cell phone. On November 9, 2017, authorities had a break in the case when they located the murder weapon in a Walnut, Mississippi lake.

46-year-old Billy Turner pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges in Lorenzen's 2010 death.

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 Memphis Bucks star was last seen alive on July 18, 2010-when he was leaving Sherra Wright's home. She will be transported back to Tennessee where she will stand trial.

Turner, 46, is being held on $1 million bond.

At one point Matt Schlef, a Fox Sports producer, asked Sherra, "Did you have any part in Lorenzen's murder?" She will also cover the case on her Daybreak program.




Sherra is the mother of Lorenzen's six children and moved to Riverside, California after successfully suing to obtain access to her ex-husband's life insurance and retirement funds.

There were always suspicions about Sherra Wright-Robinson regarding the mysterious and unsolved murder of her ex-husband, former National Basketball Association star Lorenzen Wright.

An arrest was made in the 2010 murder of former journeyman big man Lorenzen Wright earlier this month.

According to an affidavit, she told police she saw him leave her home carrying money and a box of drugs.

Shara Wright was arrested on Friday evening by federal marshals on a fugitive warrant. Lorenzen Wright's mother, Deborah Marion, said Friday. For 7 years she has fought for justice. Here's what she had to say.

Though the initial arrests and indictements have been handed down, it is still an ongoing case and those prosecuting it are still organizing their evidence.
