MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities say the ex-wife of former NBA player Lorenzen Wright has been charged with first-degree murder in his death more than seven years ago. Memphis Police Director Michael Rallings said Saturday that Sherra Wright has been charged in the death of her ex-husband, a Memphis native who played for five teams over 13 seasons as a forward and center in the NBA. Police in Riverside County, California, arrested Sherra Wright on Friday night on a fugitive from justice warrant, online records show. Wright's decomposing body was found in suburban Memphis on July 28, 2010 - 10 days after the 34-year-old was reported missing.
