Billy Ray Turner entered his plea in a Memphis court before the scheduled start of his trial on charges of possessing a weapon as a convicted felon. MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A Tennessee man charged with killing former NBA player Lorenzen Wright pleaded guilty Monday to a separate gun charge. Shelby County prosecutors say Turner illegally had two guns in his possession when he was charged in December 2017 with killing the 34-year-old Wright. Turner and Wright’s ex-wife, Sherra Wright, conspired to kill the retired NBA player and Memphis native in July 2010, authorities have said. Turner, a landscaper in the Memphis suburb of Collierville, and Sherra Wright attended the same church.
