Dee Dee Moore, the woman accused of killing Abraham Shakespeare, waived her court appearance yesterday as the Powerball Lottery murder trial continues. Moore is accused of murdering $17 million Powerball jackpot winner, Shakespeare, who was found underneath the patio behind Moore’s home in January of this year.

Soon after lottery winner Shakespeare’s numbers came up on the Powerball Lottery in 2006 he was befriended by the accused, who claimed that she would help him manage his lottery windfall. Moore also said that she wanted to write a book about his ‘rags to riches’ story in order to gain his confidence. In the following years Moore spent his money, transferred his property into her name, and finally shot him dead it is alleged.
