The ex-wife of slain former National Basketball Association player Lorenzen Wright, whose killer has not been prosecuted, was arrested on a fugitive apprehension warrant in Norco on Friday, Dec. 15.

Wright-Robinson has been charged with conspiracy, first-degree murder and criminal attempt first degree murder, Memphis police Director Michael Rallings said in announcing the charges Saturday.

MPD confirmed with what FOX13 reported Friday night that Sherra Wright was arrested in her Riverside, California home Friday night. He had been shot numerous times, as bullet fragments were found in his head, chest and right forearm.

A National Basketball Association player's body was found in a field in Memphis, Tennessee, more than seven years ago.

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. Turner was a deacon at the church where Wright-Robinson was a minister.

Wright-Robinson had told the Commercial Appeal in 2015 that police did not consider her a suspect in her ex-husband's murder, an assertion police disputed. She said police told her Sherra will be charged with murder; the same as Billy Turner.

Shara Wright was arrested on Friday evening by federal marshals on a fugitive warrant. "The law enforcement should do what's best to find out who's the killer".

Police in Memphis reopened the investigation into Wright's slaying in 2016 after receiving new information.

In the clip, Wright-Robinson is directly asked if she had any involvement with her late husband's killing and seems to avoid the question entirely. Police believe strongly that Wright-Robinson and co-conspirator Billy Turner previously tried to kill Wright. And just a little bit past it, " she said.
