Sherra Wright, the ex-wife of former National Basketball Association player Lorenzen Wright, has been charged with first-degree murder, Memphis Police said according to the Associated Press.

Sherra Wright-Robinson was arrested in her Riverside, California, home Friday. In November, the Federal Bureau of Investigation found what is believed to be the murder weapon in a lake in Mississippi.

Police charged Wright with first degree murder, conspiracy and criminal attempt first degree murder. "We wanted to investigate it as if it had just happened". On Friday, authorities arrested his ex-wife in connection with his murder.

The indictment alleges the conspiracy by Turner and Sherra Wright began in April of 2010 and that both were at Callis Cutoff and Hacks Cross Road where Lorenzen Wright's body was later found.

Officers arrested a 46-year-old man with first-degree murder in the case of the 2010 killing of the former National Basketball Association center and he is not going down by himself.

Sherra Wright divorced Lorenzen Wright months before he died, her divorce attorney Gail Mathes told the Daily News in 2010.

Lorenzen Wright's decomposed body was found in suburban Memphis on July 28, 2010 with multiple gunshot wounds.

The arrest comes after Billy Turner, 46, was arrested on December 5 and charged with Wright's murder. "We'll leave it at that", he said, adding that the investigation is still ongoing and to implore anyone with information about this seven-year-old case to come forward. "The law enforcement should do what's best to find out who's the killer".

Though published as fiction, her book, "Mr. Tell Me Anything", the story of a deceitful, philandering basketball player who grows up in MS, moves to Memphis, marries an older woman and becomes a top pro draft pick, bears an uncanny resemblance to the real-life story of Lorenzen and Sherra Wright.

"I'm first a wife", Wright-Robinson answered. Indeed, Wright-Robinson, who by then had remarried, said "99.99 percent" of the book involves true stories from her life with Wright. Wright's mother confronted him in court last week as he was arraigned.
