Lawyer: Wiretaps, recordings part of Wright investigation


MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The lawyer for a Tennessee man charged with killing former NBA player Lorenzen Wright says wiretaps and audio recordings are included in the investigative files in the case.

Media outlets report that John Keith Perry said Monday that he will be looking at “some 20,000 pages of investigation” as part of the defense of Billy Turner. Turner has pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and criminal attempt to commit first-degree murder in Wright’s death.

Wright was missing for 10 days before his decomposing body was found in a suburban Memphis field on July 28, 2010.

Turner faces the same charges as the player’s ex-wife, Sherra Wright. She was arrested in December in California. She faces a judge in February.
