MEMPHIS, Tennessee. – A hearing is scheduled for a man accused of murder in the shooting death of former NBA player Lorenzen Wright in Tennessee.
Court records show 46-year-old Billy R. Turner is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in Shelby County General Sessions court in Memphis.
Turner was indicted Tuesday on a charge of first-degree murder and was held on $1 million bond. Online court records do not show if he has a lawyer.
Wright’s body was found in a marshy area in a suburb of 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 is one of the Memphis Police Department’s most high-profile unsolved cases.
The authorities have not discussed details of the investigation.
