Woman who befriended US lottery winner charged in his slaying

A woman has been arrested in connection with the death of a Florida lottery winner who went missing after she befriended him.

Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee said Tuesday that Dorice “DeeDee” Moore is charged with being an accessory after the fact to first-degree murder in the slaying of Abraham Shakespeare. The 43-year-old man won $30 million in the Florida Lottery in 2006. He took a lump sum payment of $17 million. He disappeared in April.

Shakespeare’s body was found buried last Thursday in the backyard of a home owned by Moore and her boyfriend. The boyfriend has not been charged and no other arrests have been made.

Moore is being held in jail. Her attorney, John Liguori, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
