MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC) - The ex-wife of murdered Memphis NBA star Lorenzen Wright took the stand Tuesday, demanding she remain in charge of Wright's trust fund.
Sherra Robinson revealed she was living in fear at the time her ex-husband was found murdered execution-style back in July 2010.
"During the time of his murder and his death, I was told there were people seeking to harm me personally, and I wanted to protect those things for the children," she said.
Wright had taken out a life insurance policy before his death. She said it was left to her directly.
During a court hearing to determine if a receiver should take over what's left of the life insurance policy and other postpartum income, the attorney for Wright's father Herb grilled Robinson if she felt the money was for her or Wright's six children.
The attorney asked, "So it never was intended to be the children's money under the policy. Is that what you're saying to this court?" To which Robinson replied, "Everything I have is for my children."
"I didn't ask that. The policy. That's what we're talking about. The policy," said the attorney.
Robinson replied, "The policy, I was the direct, assigned by contract, the beneficiary."
Court resumes Wednesday at 10 a.m. and a ruling is expected around 2 p.m.
