    Sherra Wright plead not guilty on all charges. 

    The former NBA star was last seen alive on July 18, 2010 when he left the home of his ex-wife. The next day, police received a phone call from Lorenzen Wright's cell phone, but it was interrupted by gunfire, according to Shelby County District Attorney's Office.


    Wright's body was later discovered on July 28, 2010 in a field near Hacks Cross and Winchester. The then 34-year-old was shot multiple times. 

    Investigators found the alleged murder weapon in a lake near Walnut, Mississippi on November 9th of this year.

    Police said Wright's ex-wife Sherra recruited Billy Turner to carry out the murder.
