Police arrested Wright on Friday over the death of her ex-husband, which occurred more than seven years ago.

Multiple people told the Multi-Agency Gang Unit that the murder weapon was in a North Mississippi lake.

Law enforcement authorities discuss the arrest of Lorenzen Wright's ex-wife in California and announce murder and conspiracy charges. "We wanted to investigate it as if it had just happened".

Rallings opened his news conference with a statement about the Sherra Wright's arrest.

Billy R. Turner was arrested and charged with first-degree murder on Tuesday. "They said Sherra and Billy Turner previously tried to kill Wright". Deborah Marion, Wright's mother, told the Commercial Appeal that she believes Wright-Robinson killed her son over the insurance policy.

The 34-year-old, who played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, went missing on July 18, 2010 after leaving his ex-wife's home.

Wright's mother told The Commercial Appeal that a police official told her Wright-Robinson will be charged with first-degree murder, the same charge Turner faces. 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.

It is unclear when Wright-Robinson will be extradited from California to Memphis. Wright said "99.99 percent" of the book, including graphic scenes of domestic battles and one in which the book's heroine catches the basketball star in bed with another woman, are true stories from her life with Wright.

The 6-foot-11 Wright played for the Memphis Grizzlies and four other National Basketball Association teams as a forward and center over 13 seasons before retiring in 2009.

After starring at the University of Memphis, Wright was drafted by the Los Angeles Clippers prior to the 1996-1997 season.

Court documents in Shelby County, Tennessee, show how Wright-Robinson, 41, lavishly spent $973K of the settlement within 10 months of receiving it - even though the money was designated to support the couple's six children.
