The ex-wife of slain NBA star Lorenzen Wright is locked up in Southern California … after cops busted her in connection with his murder.

TMZ Sports got Sherra Wright‘s mug shot. The Riverside County Sheriff’s Dept. busted her Friday evening on a fugitive warrant for murder — which was issued in Tennessee. Memphis police have charged with 1st degree murder and conspiracy.¬†

Lorenzen — who played 14 years in the NBA — was murdered 7 years ago. His remains were found in the woods, 10 days after he was seen leaving Sherra’s Tennessee home.

The case had gone cold until recently — police found the murder weapon in a lake, and earlier this month arrested Billy Turner and charged him with 1st degree murder.

Police aren’t saying yet what the alleged connection is between Turner and Lorenzen’s ex-wife … who is sitting in jail pending extradition to Tennessee.

She was also charged with¬†criminal attempt to commit murder because police say there was a previous attempt on Lorenzen’s life.
