The ex-wife of slain former NBA player Lorenzen Wright has been arrested in California in connection with his death, according to a report by The Memphis Commercial Appeal.

Sherra Wright-Robinson’s arrest on Friday comes after the Dec. 5 indictment of 46-year-old Billy R. Turner in Wright’s death.

According to the report, Turner was a deacon at Mt. Olive No. 1 Missionary Baptist Church in Collierville, Tennessee, where Wright-Robinson was a former member.

Wright’s 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.

Police said last month that they had found a gun used in the killing in a lake near Walnut, Mississippi, about 75 miles east of Memphis.

Wright’s mother told The Commercial Appeal that a police official told her Wright-Robinson will be charged with first-degree murder, the same charge Turner faces.

“Baby Daddy” is a term used to refer to a man who is the father of a woman’s child whom she did not marry. American Greetings, the world’s biggest producer of greeting cards, decided to create cards for Father’s Day with a “Baby Daddy” theme and feature a silhouette of a Black man and woman.

President and Chief Executive Officer John W. Beeder, who began his position in April, leads American Greetings, headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio. Beeder is at the helm of an all-white executive leadership team.

The inside of the “Baby Daddy” card says, “You’re a wonderful husband and father — and I’m so grateful to have you as my partner, my friend, and my baby daddy! Happy Father’s Day.”

However, it was the only card that featured a Black couple, inferring that “Baby Daddy” status is particular to Black men.
