Woman accused of killing Florida lottery winner sued by victim's estate

Florida LotteryFlorida Lottery: Woman accused of killing Florida lottery winner sued by victim's estate

TAMPA, Fla. — The estate of slain Lakeland, Florida, lottery winner Abraham Shakespeare has filed another lawsuit against the woman accused of killing him.

The latest lawsuit, filed last week in Tampa's courthouse, accuses Dorice "DeeDee" Moore of taking more than $1 million from Shakespeare.

The estate is seeking 121 items, including many pieces of jewelry, a Rolex watch, six computers and two cameras.

The valuables were seized by Hillsborough County deputies during the investigation into Shakespeare's death. Moore wants these items returned to her. She claims they are her personal property and were not part of any illegal activity.

Randall O. Reder, a Tampa lawyer, has been representing Moore in her civil lawsuits.

Reder said he hasn't been paid for his services and is helping Moore to reclaim her property so she can raise money to pay for her defense.

Moore has been declared indigent, and her criminal case is being handled by the Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel.

A hearing has been set for Nov. 21 on Moore's request. Her murder trial is set to begin in March 2012.

Moore is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Shakespeare. If convicted as charged, she could receive life imprisonment.

Shakespeare won a $17 million lump-sum lottery payment in 2006.

Investigators say Moore befriended Shakespeare and took control of his remaining fortune, according to an affidavit.

The 43-year-old man's body was found Jan. 28, 2010, underneath a concrete slab behind a home off State Road 60 south of Plant City. He had been shot twice in the chest.

In addition to filing last week's lawsuit in Tampa, the lottery winner's estate also has several pending lawsuits against Moore in Polk County.

These lawsuits claim mortgages on properties were fraudulently transferred from Shakespeare to Moore's medical staffing company, American Medical Professionals.

One property is Shakespeare's Lakeland home on Red Hawk Bend Drive, which he purchased for about $1.07 million in 2007.

    In the picture I think she's trying to raise her hand to get the judge's attention so she can complain about what the prison hairdresser did to her, LOL.

            people believe everything they read from a story.. No one has yet to hear the other side of the story and people are judging some one they do not even know..  Pretty pathetic to believe the Media and not even know all the facts ,,, Calling someone horrible names as if she is guilty.. Give her a day in court .. Then say what you will...  Full Blown Charges from who  ...   Cops who lie and fake evidence.. Wake up and smell the coffee honey. Don't believe everything you read..

              You are right "honee"! I don't beleive what you wrote so all is well in the world.

                Finding someone under a concrete slab with 2 bullets in their chest and all of their money secreted away just leaves no room for doubt.  He was found on her boyfriend's property.  If it was MY brother or son, I would take everything that I thought they had gotten with his money. 

                I hope they throw the book at her sorry tail.  She took advantage of a person because they were not as smart as she.  He got killed because, even though it took a while, he finally figured out what she had done him and told her.  She should rot in hell.

                If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

                You never know when you will get another hit.

                          I can read evil wimmins. I been married to a few of 'em. They mamas was all evil too. She's a liar and she's guilty.

                          I'd tell her to have a seat on "Old Sparky" and then I'd fry her up extra crispy.
