Sherra Wright Pleads Guilty in NBA Death Case

MEMPHIS, TN (Ben Caxton) — Sherra Wright appeared in court in Memphis this week and plead guilty to facilitation of murder in the case of her ex-husband, former NBA star Lorenzen Wright. Facilitation of murder carries a 30-year sentence. Wright will be eligible for parole in about nine years and will get nearly two years credit for time served. Lorenzen Wright disappeared in July 2010. His body was found in the woods outside of Memphis ten days later. Billy Turner and Sherra Wright were charged with first-degree murder in December 2017. Police believe Turner and Sherra knew each other at the time of the murder and worked with a third person to help them. Sherra is the mother of Lorenzen’s six children and moved to southern California after successfully suing to obtain access to her ex-husband’s life insurance and retirement funds. The murder trial for Wright and Turner was set to begin in September. Turner will be in court next month on an unrelated gun charge.
