Accused Lorenzen Wright killer appears in court; still no trial date

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The man charged with killing former Memphis Grizzlies star Lorenzen Wright in 2010 appeared in court Thursday morning.

It was expected a trail date may have been set Thursday, but that was again delayed. Turner will be back in court again Dec. 4.

The last time Billy Turner appeared in court was Sept. 16. That was the day the trial was supposed to start, but Turner’s attorney John Keith Perry asked for the trial to be postponed so he could review and organize more evidence that came forward, which included bank records and possible video.

The trial delay came after his co-defendant, Sherra Wright, suddenly pleaded guilty in July.

Wright is serving a 30-year sentence for facilitation of murder of her ex-husband. She could be released in seven years.

Last year, Perry said Turner’s trial could start in January or February.
