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.
