Trial continues in Florida lottery winner's murder
Confidential informant testimony continues in trial of woman accused of murder in Tampa
Jurors in the murder trial of a woman accused of killing a Florida lottery winner heard hours of testimony from a confidential informant.
Dorice "Dee Dee" Moore is accused of scamming Abraham Shakespeare out of some of his lottery winnings and then killing him in 2009.
Tuesday, jurors heard recordings made by Greg Smith, an informant. Smith said he convinced Moore to use a "fall guy" to take the blame for the disappearance of Lakeland lottery winner Abraham Shakespeare as a ruse to reveal what happened to him.
During the trial's opening statements, Moore's lawyer told jurors that his client was trying to help protect Shakespeare's assets from a pending child support case when he was killed by drug dealers who haven't been caught.
