A Tennessee judge issued a $20 million bond Wednesday for the ex-wife of former NBA player Lorenzen Wright in his shooting death nearly eight years ago.

Shelby County Criminal Court Judge Lee Coffee said his decision to give Sherra Wright such a high bond was partly driven by her bad behavior while being held at a women’s jail on murder and attempted murder charges in her ex-husband’s slaying.

Lorenzen Wright played for 13 seasons as a forward and center in the NBA Joshua Garnett Jersey , including several for the Grizzlies in Memphis, where he was born and raised.

His decomposing, bullet-riddled body was found in a swampy field in suburban Memphis on July 28, 2010 – 10 days after the 34-year-old was reported missing. In an affidavit read in court by prosecutor Paul Hagerman, witnesses said she masterminded a plan to have two men kill Lorenzen Wright at his home in Atlanta, but that attempt failed.

Authorities said she and Billy Turner then conspired to kill him in Memphis, and they dumped one of the guns used in the shooting in a Mississippi lake. One witness cited in the affidavit said Sherra Wright identified the spot where her ex-husband’s body would be found, days before it was discovered.

Turner also has been charged with murder and attempted murder. He is being held on $15 million bond. Both have pleaded not guilty.

Sherra Wright received $1 million from her ex-husband’s life insurance policy. She was arrested in December in California, where she had lived for three years after moving away from Memphis.

Her lawyer Blake Ballin argued the 47-year-old is indigent, has no serious crimes on her record and has strong ties to the community in asking for a $100,000 bond. Ballin said Wright would live with her brother in Shelby County if she were to be released on bond.

”Mrs. Wright has no criminal history of a violent nature Irving Fryar Jersey ,” Ballin said.

Coffee noted her family connections but gave more weight to her repeated instances of unruly behavior in jail. Hagerman cited six instances where she was written up by jail guards, including three the day before her bond hearing.

On Tuesday, Wright was caught passing items to another inmate, Hagerman said. Later, she allegedly took off her clothes, flooded her jail cell and verbally insulted and threatened jail guards with language Coffee called abusive and offensive.

While flooding her cell, Wright said she was ”going swimming,” an indication of her troubled mental state, Coffee said. The judge called Wright’s actions the day before her bond hearing ”absolutely shocking and mind numbing” and said she presents a danger to the community.

”I cannot trust her,” Coffee said.

Wright shook her head repeatedly during Coffee’s lecture, during which he also said there is a ”reasonable likelihood of conviction” in the case.

As she was leaving the courtroom with court officers Jimmy Graham Jersey , Wright addressed the judge.

”Thank you, your honor,” she said.

Wright faces up to life in prison plus 50 years if convicted on charges of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.

One day after being eliminated from playoff contention for the second straight year, the reeling New York Islanders were glad to get another win.

Andrew Ladd scored the tiebreaking goal late in the third period to lift the Islanders to a 4-3 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night.

Anders Lee, Anthony Beauvillier and Brock Nelson also scored to help New York get just its third win in 17 games (3-10-4). Jaroslav Halak stopped 33 shots.

”As athletes we want to win, we hate losing so we want to compete, we want to go out there and work hard do the right thing,” Beauvillier said. ”It’s about pride, it’s about playing for us and it’s about feeling good about ourselves.”

Matt Duchene, Erik Karlsson and Bobby Ryan scored for Ottawa Antonio Gates Jersey , which has lost six straight for the second time this season. Mike Condon finished with 27 saves.

”It’s frustrating,” said Duchene, who also had two assists. ”I thought we were probably the better team start to finish. We had a lot of sustained pressure in their end, some really good scoring chances and Halak was good for them. It’s frustrating, even though the points don’t mean anything right now, you want to win games.”

Ryan tied the score 3-3 for Ottawa with 4:34 left after he sent a shot on goal and New York’s Brandon Davidson deflected it into his own net.

Ladd regained the lead for the Islanders with 2:03 remaining as he tipped Thomas Hickey’s shot past Condon for his 11th of the season.

”It was a little scrambly game, but we kept fighting and it was good to see (Ladd) get the winner,” Islanders coach Doug Weight said. ”We had to weather some storms. They put a lot of pucks on the net. They had some pretty good power play looks and we managed to hold on so it was good.

”It was a good win.”

Trailing 2-1, the Islanders tied it in the game 1:23 into the second as Beauvillier beat Condon with Jordan Eberle in front to screen.

The Senators had a number of chances to regain the lead as they outshot New York 13-7 in the middle period, but Halak made several big saves.

Nelson gave the Islanders a 3-2 lead with 1:18 to go in the period as he fired a wrist shot past Condon for his 18th of the season.

The Islanders opened the scoring on the power play 6:15 into the game as Lee, with his team-high 39th Lance Alworth Jersey , backhanded John Tavares‘ rebound past Condon.

The Senators then scored twice to take the lead. Jean-Gabriel Pageau’s shot went in off Duchene with 7:06 left in the first, and then Karlsson’s ninth of the season put Ottawa in front less than two minutes later.

Ottawa native Ben Sexton, who was recalled Sunday, played his second NHL game and first on home ice. His father, Randy, was the Senators’ general manager from 1993-95.

NOTES: Ottawa D Ben Harpur was a healthy scratch. … Senators RW Mark Stone missed his ninth straight game with a leg injury, while Marian Gaborik missed his third straight game with an undisclosed injury. … Davidson knocked a puck into his own goal for the second straight game. On Monday night in a 3-0 loss at home against Florida, the Panthers’ Evgenii Dadonov sent a pass from the left side boards toward the net for a streaking Nick Bjugstad, but the puck deflected off Davidson’s skate and past goalie Christopher Gibson.
