he ex-wife of former NBA player Lorenzen Wright has been charged in his slaying, more than seven years after his body was found in a field in his hometown of Memphis.

Wright, a former Cavs player, played the 2008-2009 season in Cleveland, according to ESPN.

Memphis Police Director Michael Rallings said Saturday that Sherra Wright has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Wright, who played for five teams over 13 seasons as a forward and center in the NBA.

Police and federal marshals in Riverside County, California, arrested 46-year-old Sherra Wright on Friday night on a fugitive from justice warrant, online records show.

Wright’s decomposing body was found in suburban Memphis on July 28, 2010 — 10 days after the 34-year-old was reported missing. He was shot multiple times. The seven-year investigation into his death has been one of the Memphis Police Department’s most high-profile unsolved cases.
