Sherra Wright, the ex-wife of NBA star and Memphian Lorenzen Wright, pleaded guilty yesterday to her role in his 2010 killing and an earlier attempt on his life, the Commercial Appeal reports. She could have faced life in prison if convicted at trial in September. But with credit for more than 500 days already served in jail, the judge said Sherra Wright now might become eligible for release in roughly seven more years. She avoided a first-degree murder conviction, instead pleading guilty to facilitation to commit first-degree murder and facilitation to commit attempted first-degree murder.
