Lottery slaying now a 1st-degree case

Florida LotteryFlorida Lottery: Lottery slaying now a 1st-degree case

TAMPA, Fla. — A grand jury indicted Dorice Donegan "Dee Dee" Moore on Thursday on a charge of first-degree murder in the death and disappearance of Florida Lottery winner Abraham Shakespeare.

Grand jurors returned a one-count indictment against Moore for premeditated murder.  It accuses Moore of shooting Shakespeare between April 1 and April 13.

The next step is for Moore to enter a plea to the charge during an arraignment before Circuit Judge Daniel Sleet. That has yet to be scheduled.

Shakespeare was last seen alive in April. He was shot twice in the chest and buried under a concrete slab on a Turkey Creek property owned by Moore.

Moore has given several versions of what happened to Shakespeare, including that she killed him in self-defense, that her son did it and that her attorney, D. Howard Stitzel III, did it.

She has also given several versions of why she took control of what was left of the nearly $13 million Shakespeare took home, after taxes, when he won the Florida Lottery in November 2006. Prosecutors said she siphoned $3.5 million of those winnings.

Prosecutors also added an illegal wiretapping charge against Moore, although it was not part of the grand jury review.

Moore was arrested Feb. 2 on a charge of accessory after the fact to a first-degree murder in Shakespeare's killing.

On Feb. 12, the state attorney's office for Hillsborough County upgraded the charge to first-degree murder.

Hillsborough Circuit Judge Walter Heinrich granted a defense request Thursday to reduce her bail on the accessory charge because prosecutors didn't file formal charges within 21 days as required by state law. Heinrich said Moore could be released on her own recognizance on that charge.

However, Heinrich told Moore the ruling did not affect his decision to hold her without bail on the murder charge.

I thought I liked money as much as anybody but man, not that much.

And then she blames her own son for it? Whoa.

There really are evil people in the world.

              I really hope they throw the book at her. This lady can't even keep her story straight with who supposedly killed him.

                      I agree, I hope she doesn't get a nice ladies suit and wear her hair back and let the tears fly and get a single digit sentence. It's just not fair knowing that Mr. Shakespeare's family and friends will be without him for the rest of there lives.

                          She doesn't look sweet and caring to me. She's got that Lorena Bobbitt look in her eyes.

                            I wonder how she came up with all of those killers..maybe two or more of them did the deed.  I am sorry, she looks like TT to me.  She is blonde and with all of those lies she is telling..I bet her brain is hurting. She felt like since she was white and all, Shakespear should be beholden to her for taking all of that dirty money off his hands.  I wonder how the court case will go but knowing Florida.. she may credit for time served. Prison is only for "them". After all, it wasn't like she was selling drugs or something.

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

                            You never know when you will get another hit.
