The ex-wife of slain former NBA player Lorenzen Wright has been arrested in California in connection with his death, sources close to the investigation said Friday.

The arrest of Sherra Wright-Robinson came after the Dec. 5 indictment of Billy R. Turner in the former basketball player's death. Turner was a deacon at Mt. Olive No. 1 Missionary Baptist Church in Collierville, where Wright's ex-wife was a former member.

The body of Wright, 34, was found badly decomposed in southeast Memphis in July 2010, and investigators found evidence of shell casings from different calibers at the scene. He apparently called 911 shortly after midnight on July 19, 2010, from a field near TPC Southwind golf course. At least five gunshot wounds were documented in an autopsy.
