TAMPA (CBSMiami/AP) – A Central Florida woman accused of swindling a Florida lottery winner out of money before killing him is on trial in Tampa.
Dorice “Dee Dee” Moore, 40, is charged with first-degree murder in the 2009 death of Abraham Shakespeare.
Shakespeare won a $30 million lottery jackpot in 2006.
Authorities say Moore befriended Shakespeare, stole the money and then killed him. His body was found under a concrete slab behind a home detectives say was owned by Moore’s ex-boyfriend in Hillsborough County.
The trial is expected to last two weeks.
