Wright-Robinson had previously spoken about the death of her late former husband, who played for the and four other National Basketball Association teams as a forward and center in 13 seasons before retiring in 2009.
And as it turns out, the police were not done making arrests in relation to the case, as word came down on Saturday that Wright's ex-wife, Sherra, was arrested and charged with a myriad of crimes. Wright's ex-wife comes up multiple times in the piece and was even interviewed.
It took seven years for investigators to catch a break in the murder of Lorenzen Wright, which was one of the most gut-wrenching unsolved cases in Memphis Sports history and earlier this month, they got that break.
The alleged murder weapon was recovered from a MS lake in November, and the recent testimony of Billy R. Turner, a former deacon at the church Wright attended, led to the arrest of his ex-wife. Turner, 46, pleaded not guilty.
Fox 13 in Memphis reported that Sherra Wright was arrested in California.

Sherra Wright, ex-wife of Lorenzen Wright, cries during a memorial service honoring the life of Lorenzen Wright in 2010.
Wright's decomposing, bullet riddled body was found in a Memphis suburb in July of 2010.
Before he left, Sherra Wright said she overheard her ex-husband on the telephone telling someone that he was going to "flip something for $110,000", the document said. Dispatchers acknowledged they heard noises like gunshots before the call was dropped.
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. An ESPN report confirms Sherra Wright-Robinson has been charged with 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.
