Three have been charged for the murder of Phil Trenary, the once president and CEO of the Greater Memphis Chamber.

Late Saturday, Memphis Police Department (MPD) officials announced they charged McKinney Wright Jr., 22; Quandarius Richardson, 18; and Racanisha Wright, 16.

They were all charged with first-degree murder in perpetration of criminal attempt robbery and criminal attempt especially aggravated robbery.

Richardson was one of two teens charged Saturday for stealing a truck believed to be connected to Trenary's murder. Shymontre Reed was charged in that crime was apparently not charged in the murder.
