Sherra Wright-Robinson, shown here in 2010 at her ex-husband's funeral, has been charged with the murder of Lorenzen Wright. "He played basketball in this city, came back to play professional basketball in this city and he lost his life in this city".

Wright's body was found in a swampy field outside of Memphis on July 28, 2010, 10 days after the 34-year-old was reported missing.

"They was like, no, you know", she told the Commercial Appeal. Lorenzen Wright's mother, Deborah Marion, told The Commerical Appeal. Um, they need to spend time and focus and find out what happened to him.

Turner was reportedly a deacon at Mt.

The Commercial Appeal reported on August 1, 2010, Memphis police searched his ex-wife's home and found burned pieces of metal and a letter addressed to her and Lorenzen Wright, but law enforcement refused to divulge what those items meant to the case.

She was arrested in her Riverside, California home Friday night.

In 2014, Wright-Robinson agreed to a confidential settlement in a dispute in Circuit Court over how she spent $1M in insurance meant to benefit their six children. And the 2015 Sports Illustrated-Fox Sports 1 joint investigation into Wright's murder had plenty to say about Sherra, including that Wright's assistant turned audio recordings of Sherra threatening him over to police.

After a pause, she responded, "At first, I'm a wife, then I'm a mother, and then thirdly I'm an author". Lorenzen Wright was drafted by the Los Angeles Clippers in 1996 and played for five teams before the end of his career in 2009, the Washington Post reports. Police believe strongly that Wright-Robinson and co-conspirator Billy Turner previously tried to kill Wright.

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

In the clip, Wright-Robinson is directly asked if she had any involvement with her late husband's killing and seems to avoid the question entirely. The Shelby County sheriff's office said they are working on her extradition to Tennessee.
