Shelby County Criminal Court judge Lee Coffee said Friday that he’s been informed by Dr. Wyatt Nichols that Sherra Wright can advise her lawyers and help with her defense against charges of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder in her ex-husband’s slaying.
Coffee had ordered a mental evaluation of Sherra Wright.
Sherra Wright and co-defendant Billy Ray Turner were indicted in December.
Turner also is charged with first-degree murder. Both have pleaded not guilty.
