  • iStock/Thinkstock(MEMPHIS, Tenn.) -- Deborah Marion, the mother of murdered Memphis-born NBA player Lorenzen Wright, confronted Wright’s alleged killer with one chilling question during his first court appearance on Thursday -- “How could you have murdered my son?” Wright was a University of Memphis basketball standout and a 13-year professional player who played for five NBA teams from 1996 to 2009. Wright was last heard from during a 911 call to a Germantown, Tennessee dispatcher on July 19, 2010, when he can be heard screaming “God damn” as gunshots rattle off in the background. Ten days after receiving the distress call, police discovered Wright’s severely decomposed, bullet-riddled body in the woods of southeast Memphis alongside shell casings from multiple guns. Police arrested 46-year-old Billy Turner on Tuesday and charged him with first-degree murder. He is currently being held on $1 million bond. Turner made his first court appearance in front of Shelby County Judge Lee Coffee on Thursday, when Marion, overcome with emotion, yelled at Turner as he entered the courtroom. Coffee called Marion to the front of the court room shortly after the outburst and admonished her for the outburst. “This case is not going to be resolved anytime soon," Coffee said. I know it's been seven long years for you. ... Please be respectful of the courtroom and be respectful of the administration of justice." He continued, “If it happens again I'm going to have to bar you from the court room and I don't want to do that to you." In response, Marion said, "I want to apologize, but if anybody had a son that was murdered they'd feel me." Coffee actually shared with Marion that his father had been killed in an effort to show his understanding of her difficult situation. After the emotional outburst the Wright family left the courthouse without speaking to reporters, ABC affiliate WATN reports. Billy Turner is expected back in court next week for an arraignment, during which time his family plans to hire a lawyer.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

  • Photo by Allen Kee / ESPN Images(SEATTLE) -- Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon has been accused of sexual harassment and battery in a lawsuit, ESPN reports, and will take a leave of absence from his job as an analyst on Seattle Seahawks radio broadcasts.The Seahawks said in a statement on Wednesday that they had accepted Moon's request for a leave of absence. The statement did not give a reason for Moon's request.The lawsuit, filed in Orange County Superior Court in California on Monday, accuses Moon of making "unwanted and unsolicited" sexual advances towards a female employee of his sports marketing firm. The employee, Wendy Haskell, told The Washington Post through an attorney that she wishes to have her name made public.On Thursday, Moon's attorney, Daniel Fears, said his client "contends these claims are meritless, and he has every intention to vigorously defend himself in court."According to the lawsuit, Haskell says Moon demanded she submit to "a variety of unnerving sexual and perverse controlling arrangements," including forcing her to sleep in the same bed as him on business trips and wearing skimpy lingerie. She also accuses Moon of drugging her drink without consent during a business trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.In 1995, a Minnesota Vikings cheerleader accused Moon of offering her cash for sex, while he was a Vikings player. That case was settled out of court. He was arrested later in 1995 after his wife told police that he had struck her and choked her. The case went to trial, where Moon was acquitted when his wife testified that she had initiated the violence. The couple later divorced.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

  • Photo by Scott Clarke / ESPN Images(SEATTLE) -- In a surprising move as baseball's Hot Stove season heats up, the Seattle Mariners acquired Miami Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon, a source told ESPN Thursday.With Robinson Cano firmly entrenched at second base, the team is expected to move the speedy Gordon to center field. Gordon, 29, hit .308 last season with 60 stolen bases and 114 runs scored. He is owed $37 million over the next three years, as well as a $14 million option for the 2021 season. The Mariners are expected to take on that whole contract.After missing 80 games of the 2016 season for a violation of MLB's performance enhancing drug policy, Gordon returned to action and hit an emotional home run in the first game after the death of Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez. The Marlins are expected to receive two minor league prospects from Seattle in the trade. Miami will also send $1 million in international slot money, which the Mariners could use to entice Japanese pitcher Shohei Ohtani. Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
