MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A new bond hearing has been set for Sherra Wright and Billy Turner, the two accused of killing Wright's ex-husband and NBA player Lorenzen Wright.

Early this week attorneys for both sides were notified that a separate trial was scheduled for this week. That proceeding limited the amount of time that could be spent hearing from both sides on the issue of bond, so the court delayed the hearing.

All parties are now scheduled to be back in court on May 4th.

 

Turner was arrested in November and Wright was arrested at her home in California a month later.

Both suspects will be tried together.

Lorenzen Wright was killed in 2011.His body was found in field in Southeast Shelby County several days after he made a call for help to 911.
