BARTOW, Fla. (AP) — The million-dollar Florida home of a murdered lottery winner has been stripped from his convicted killer and returned to his estate.
The Ledger of Lakeland (http://bit.ly/15PKZSb ) reports Friday that Circuit Judge J. Dale Durrance ruled that Dorice Moore never paid Abraham Shakespeare. A lawyer representing Shakespeare's estate said it will be sold to benefit his two sons.
Shakespeare won a $17 million lump-sum in 2006 but he lost most of his money. During Moore's trial last year, prosecutors showed she befriended Shakespeare to take control of his remaining wealth, including his home. He disappeared in April 2009 and his body was found nine months later under a slab behind a home owned by Moore. He had been shot twice.
Moore was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.
