NBA PLAYER KILLED
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two lawyers who were representing the ex-wife of slain former NBA player Lorenzen Wright withdrew from the case Wednesday, citing a deteriorating relationship with their high-profile client. Shelby County Criminal Court Judge Lee Coffee granted a motion from Steve Farese Jr. and Blake Ballin for their removal from the case of Sherra Wright. She is charged with murder in the slaying of Lorenzen Wright, whose body was found in July 2010 riddled with bullet wounds in a swampy field in suburban Memphis. He was missing for 10 days before his body was found. By Adrian Sainz. SENT: 520 words, photos.
