Slain NBA star's ex-wife appears in California court in wheelchair
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The ex-wife of slain NBA star Lorenzen Wright has made her first court appearance in California, where she was brought in to court in a wheelchair.
News media report authorities say 46-year-old Sherra Wright’s case was delayed until Wednesday while she undergoes a medical evaluation.
She was arrested Friday in California and charged with first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.
In court in Riverside on Monday, Wright’s lawyer, Eric Keen, wouldn’t comment on her medical condition or why she was in a wheelchair.
Thirty-four-year-old Lorenzen Wright was found shot to death in 2010. A new tip in 2016 led investigators to Walnut, Mississippi, where divers found a firearm. Earlier this month, 46-year-old Billy Ray Turner was arrested and pleaded not guilty to a murder charge.
