Authorities charged a man Tuesday in connection with the slaying of former NBA player Lorenzen Wright, more than seven years after Wright’s bullet-riddled body was found decomposing in a Tennessee suburb.

Billy Turner, 46, was indicted on a charge of first-degree murder and was being held on $1 million bond, Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich said. Court records did not list a lawyer for Turner or a date for a court hearing.
