Sherra Wright, Billy Turner tried to kill Lorenzen more than once, police say

Now, Wright's ex-wife, Sherra Wright-Robinson (seen at left above), was arrested Friday night in Riverside, California and charged with conspiracy, first-degree murder and criminal attempt first degree murder, with the attempted murder charge revolving around a prior attempt to kill Wright.

The police in Riverside County, Calif., arrested Sherra Wright on Friday night on a fugitive from justice warrant, online records show. Wright's body was found in a swampy field in suburban Memphis on July 28, 2010, 10 days after the 34-year-old was reported missing.

Lorenzen Wright's murder remained one of Memphis police's highest-profile cold cases until investigators found a murder weapon in MS last month.

Billy R. Turner, 46, was arrested and charged in Wright's murder on Tuesday, December 5. Turner, a landscaper and resident of the Memphis suburb of Collierville, has pleaded not guilty.

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. Here's five things to know about Wright-Robinson and her relationship with the man she's accused of murdering. On November 9, an Federal Bureau of Investigation dive team recovered a gun used in Wright's murder from a lake in Walnut, Mississippi.

After a pause, she responded, "At first, I'm a wife, then I'm a mother, and then thirdly I'm an author". Former L.A. Clipper Lorenzen Wright was murdered seven years ago. "The law enforcement should do what's best to find who's the killer".

He also represented the Atlanta Falcons Baltimore Ravens and Seattle Seahawks during his final three seasons. The South Florida native was a triple threat athlete that played cornerback, wide receiver and returner.

She met Wright through basketball.

Wright-Robinson had divorced the father of her six children months before his murder and was $3 million in debt, according to her own divorce lawyer at the time.

It's not clear if there's a tie between Wright's ex-wife and the landscaper.

She also appeared disgusted by suggestions that she played part in her ex-husband's death.

Wright was drafted by the L.A. Clippers in 1996, he went on to play for the Grizzlies, Hawks, Kings and Cavs.
