There are new developments in the violent murder of former NBA player Lorenzen Wright. As CNN shares, the 34-year-old’s body was found with multiple bullet wounds in a swampy area outside Memphis in 2010. His ex-wife, Sherra Wright-Robinson, has now been charged with conspiring to kill him with along with another man.
Wright-Robinson, 46, was arrested on December 15 and indicted on charges of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder. Her alleged co-conspirator, 46-year-old Billy Turner was arrested 10 days prior and charged with the same crimes. He has pleaded not guilty.
Memphis authorities did not share a motive for the murder but they said that the duo tried to kill Wright in the past. According to Memphis Police Director Mike Rallings, there is a relationship of some sort between the suspects. “It’s safe to say they knew each other.” The New York Daily News
