TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The woman charged with first-degree murder in
the slaying of a Florida Lottery winner says she doesn't have
enough money to hire a lawyer.
Dorice Donegan "Dee Dee" Moore, who investigators say siphoned
millions of Florida Lottery winner Abraham Shakespeare's fortune
before killing him, asked for a public defender in court papers
filed last month.
Moore stated in the papers that she now has only $100 in the
Detectives say Shakespeare was killed at a home in a rural town
east of Tampa in April 2009, about three years after claiming a
winning Lottery ticket and taking a $17 million lump-sum payment.
His body was found last month buried behind a home Moore owns
with her boyfriend.
