A judge reset a hearing on Tuesday to address a request by the ex-wife of slain NBA player Lorenzen Wright to throw out her guilty plea in his 2010 killing in Memphis, Tennessee. Sherra Wright filed a petition for relief of conviction or sentence after her surprise guilty plea to facilitation of murder in July 2019. She has asked Shelby County Criminal Court Judge Lee Coffee — who approved her guilty plea in Lorenzen Wright’s slaying and sentenced her to 30 years in prison — to hold an evidentiary hearing on her petition. A hearing had been scheduled for Tuesday but it was rescheduled by her attorney and Coffee for July 6.
