Sherra Wright-Robinson is charged in the killing her ex-husband, former National Basketball Association player and Memphian Lorenzen Wright, seven years ago.
He played for the Memphis Grizzlies and four other National Basketball Association teams, primarily as a forward and center, over 13 seasons before retiring in 2009.
And there had always been talk about Wright-Robinson's potential involvement in her ex-husband's death, starting when the police searched her home in August 2010 and found burned pieces of metal and remnants of a letter addressed to her and Wright in an outside firepit. Wright's ex-wife comes up multiple times in the piece and was even interviewed. The seven-year investigation into his death has been one of the Memphis Police Department's most high-profile unsolved cases.
Things developed quickly from there, as December 12 brought the indictment of Billy R. Turner on first-degree murder charges related to Wright's killing. He has pleaded not guilty to the murder charge.
The specifics of the connection between Wright-Thompson and Turner haven't been reported, but Turner was apparently a deacon at a church in Shelby County, Tennessee, where Wright-Thompson was a member, and the motive may have included a $1 million life insurance policy.

Former NBA players and friends including Anfernee Hardaway and Elliot Perry attended a memorial service for Wright in the days after his body was found. Hours later police got a 9-1-1 call from his cell phone - the dispatcher heard eleven gunshots.
The body was found in a field near some woods in the height of summer, complicating the investigation because evidence had likely deteriorated in the heat.
Police charged Wright with first degree murder, conspiracy and criminal attempt first degree murder. Authorities in Collierville were accused of dragging their feet in the days after the report was filed, and an apparent lack of communication kept authorities from linking the 911 call to the missing-person report.
