Former Memphis Grizzlies star Lorenzen Wright’s ex-wife has been charged with murder in Wright's death seven years ago. On Friday night, police arrested Sherra Wright in Riverside, California. Many details are still sealed but Wright's mother, Deborah Marion, confirmed to a local news station that her ex-daughter-in-law was charged with the 2010 slaying of Lorenzen, whose body was found decomposing after being shot numerous times in a Tennessee suburb.

Sherra Wright--now charged with murder--when asked by @SInow in 2015 if she had anything to do with Lorenzen Wright's murder. She decided to answer a different question and then repeated her non-responsive answer. Can't imagine her lawyers are too thrilled she did that interview. https://t.co/GBLCL0UlCO— Michael McCann (@McCannSportsLaw) December 16, 2017
