Sometimes, you get stories that you just don’t want to hear. But former NBA player Lorenzen Wright was murdered a few years back and who was behind the murder? His ex-wife Sherra Wright.
The ex-wife of slain former NBA player Lorenzen Wright agreed to a deal Thursday in which she pleads guilty to facilitation of first-degree murder and receives a 30-year prison sentence.
Sherra Wright entered the plea during a hearing in Shelby County Criminal Court.
Judge Lee Coffee said Sherra Wright would be eligible for parole once she served 30 percent of her sentence, which would be around nine years.
Lorenzen Wright’s body was found in a swampy field in Memphis in July 2010. He had been missing for 10 days before his body was found riddled with bullet wounds. Sherra Wright and co-defendant Billy Turner were charged with first-degree murder and had been scheduled to go to trial Sept. 16.

An absolute horrific story. Lorenzen was a good player. And it’s just a tragedy whenever you hear a story like this. His ex-wife will spend the majority of the remainder of her life in jail. And whatever, were her motives you just hate to see a story like this.
