    FOX13’s Zach Crenshaw has been looking into Sherra’s recent history since the 2010 murder of Lorenzen. Sherra has lived in multiple states since 2015. She first moved to Texas then California, where is she is currently.


    She has 6 children, one who's in college.

    The woman in the wheelchair Monday lived a very different life on social media.

    Just minutes before a photo was snapped of Sherra Wright in the back of a squad car, she was at her son's basketball game.

    Less than 72 hours later, she was in a wheelchair -- a far cry from her Instagram page. Wright posted pictures of herself and many more of her kids. On Twitter, Wright actively supported her kids. Weeks before her arrest, she retweeted multiple tributes to her ex-husband Lorenzen on the anniversary of his death.

    She remarried back in 2014 to a Shelby County Sheriff’s deputy. They later divorced, and sources told us she remarried just this year, trading the name Robinson for Robertson.

    Police and prosecutors said she recruited others to murder her husband and was in the woods when Lorenzen was shot and killed.

    The evidence the Shelby County District Attorney has on Sherra is unclear, but right now, the mother to six children is facing murder charges and awaiting a return to her old home where everybody knows her name.

    We asked the district attorney if her office had any contact with Sherra Wright Monday. DA Amy Weirich said they were waiting until she was extradited back.

    As for the evidence, we do not know what investigators have. We do know multiple shell casings were found at the murder scene. Police said they've only recovered one gun.
