The investigation of Lorenzen Wright's murder seven years ago has taken another turn: fresh on the heels of the arrest of Billy Turner in Memphis, police in California have now arrested Sherra Wright-Thompson, Lorenzen Wright's ex-wife, in connection with his death, according to the Commercial Appeal.

Multiple people told the Multi-Agency Gang Unit that the murder weapon was in a North Mississippi lake.

Wright-Robinson was indicted and arrested for conspiracy, criminal attempted first degree & first degree urder in the death of Wright, police said. "We wanted to investigate it as if it had just happened". "Lorenzen Wright was a homegrown young man".

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. An ESPN report confirms Sherra Wright-Robinson has been charged with first-degree murder. They began to "follow the evidence" and it lead to Friday with the arrest of Sherra Wright-Robinson.

His mother, Deborah Marion, told the that she believes money was a motivating factor for Sherra, citing her son's $1million life insurance policy.

The arrest comes after Billy Turner, 46, was arrested on December 5 and charged with Wright's murder. In the clip, Wright-Robinson is directly asked if she had any involvement with her late husband's killing and seems to avoid the question entirely.

Wright-Robinson has a court date in Riverside Monday.
