The arrest comes just two weeks after 46-year-old Billy R. Turner was indicted on first-degree murder charges for Wright’s 2010 death.
“Now we got her,” said Lorenzen Wright’s mother, Deborah Wright, on Saturday morning.
Marion said Saturday she thought Sherra Wright had been involved in her son’s death for years.
“If she can’t have him can’t nobody can have him, plus she wanted him gone and wanted the money,” she said when asked what she thought Wright’s possible motive could have been.
“Job well done. That’s it. It ain’t over yet.” source
Wright’s body was found in a swampy field in suburban Memphis on July 28, 2010, 10 days after the 34-year-old was reported missing. He was shot multiple times.
Police said last month that they had found a gun used in the killing in a lake near the small town of Walnut, Mississippi, about 75 miles east of Memphis.
Wright, who was born and raised in Memphis, played for the Memphis Grizzlies and four other NBA teams as a forward and center over 13 seasons before retiring in 2009.
