The ex-wife of former Clippers player Lorenzen Wright is mentally competent to stand trial in connection with his killing, according to an evaluation read in court Friday.
Sherra Wright and Billy Ray Turner were charged in December with shooting Lorenzen Wright to death in a Memphis field in July 2010 to collect on a $1 million life insurance policy. Both have pleaded not guilty.
Shelby County, Tennessee, Judge Lee Coffee ordered Sherra Wright to undergo a mental examination in August. It followed several jailhouse incidents involving Wright, including one where she stripped naked, attempted to stuff items into a toilet to flood the cell and told guards she was “going swimming, y’all.”
Wright, who lived in Murrieta at the time of her arrest, is being held in lieu of $20-million bail.
