Lorenzen Wright's ex-wife arrested in connection with National Basketball Association player's murder

Sherra Wright Robinson and Billy Turner

Records showed that on August 1, 2010, Memphis police searched her home and found burned pieces of metal and a letter addressed to her and Lorenzen Wright, but law enforcement at that time did not say what the items meant to investigators.

Lorenzen Wright's murder remained one of Memphis police's highest-profile cold cases until investigators found a murder weapon in MS last month. The next day, police received a phone call from Lorenzen Wright's cell phone, but it was interrupted by gunfire, according to Shelby County District Attorney's Office.

Turner, a former deacon at the church Wright-Robinson used to attend, pled not guilty to those charges.

But dispatchers didn't alert patrol officers or commanders because they couldn't confirm it came from their jurisdiction.

Two sons of Sherra and Lorenzen Wright, twins Lamar and Shamar, play basketball at Murrieta Mesa High. Days later, a patrol officer was sent to give the information to Memphis police.

Jon Wertheim of Sports Illustrated wrote about the cold case in October 2015, noting Wright made a 911 call on July 19, 2010, that featured at least nine gunshots.

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

Billy R. Turner was arrested and charged with first-degree murder on Tuesday.

After Sherra Wright was arrested on Friday, Marion expressed her relief and thanked Jesus.

She was criticized for burning through almost a million dollars of her ex-husband's life insurance money that was taken out just six months before Lorenzen's death.

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

Years ago a Memphis newspaper reported that police considered her a person of interest in Wright's murder.
