That's when his body was found in a field by Callis Cutoff Road near Hacks Cross and Winchester in southeast Memphis. "We went to the crime scene and walked in Lorenzen's final steps".

'They need to bury her, ' she said.

It's been reported Turner and Sherra Wright attended the same church, but their exact relationship is unclear. On July 19, 2010, authorities launched an investigation into his disappearance after Germantown Police received a 911 call from Wright's cell phone.

Wright played for the Memphis Grizzlies and four other National Basketball Association teams as a forward and center in 13 seasons before he retired in 2009.

At one point Matt Schlef, a Fox Sports producer, asked Sherra, "Did you have any part in Lorenzen's murder?"

Wright-Robinson's arrest comes more than seven years after her ex-husband's body was discovered in a field in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee.

Assistant Chief Deputy D. Scott Wright of the Shelby County Sheriff's Office said at the press conference Saturday that they are working with authorities in California to have Wright-Robinson extradited back to Tennessee. ESPN stated Federal Bureau of Investigation agents found the murder weapon in a MS lake based on a tip they received.

Sherra Wright, 46, and previously indicted Billy R. Turner, also 46, were indicted by a Shelby County Grand Jury on charges of first-degree premeditated murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.

Lorenzen Wright's ex-wife was arrested.

Wright-Robinson only added to the suspicion when she had spent nearly all of the money from the life insurance policy he took out on himself six months before his death. Lorenzen Wright's mother says she believes Sherra Wright killed her son for money, including a $1 million life insurance policy.

The spending spree included several hundred thousand on a lavish home, $11,750 for a trip to NY, $69,000 on furniture, tens of thousands of dollars on a Cadillac Escalade and a Lexus, and a $7,100 deposit on a swimming pool.

The Memphis Bucks star was last seen alive on July 18, 2010-when he was leaving Sherra Wright's home.
