Moore’s bond: $1 million

February 4th, 2010 by – The woman accused of being an accessory to the murder of a Polk County lottery winner had her first appearance in court Tuesday.

Dee Dee Moore was arrested Monday afternoon in Hillsborough County, and was held in jail overnight without bond.

Today, a judge set her bond at $1 million, and said she will have to prove where she gets the money.

She is charged with being an accessory to first-degree murder in connection with the death of Abraham Shakespeare, the Polk County man who won the lottery in 2006, and disappeared last year.

Monday night after Moore’s arrest, Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee outlined what detectives believe was Moore’s involvement in Shakespeare’s murder.

Gee said Moore arranged to have the Shakespeare’s body buried, and played an active role in trying to cover up his death.

But on Monday before her arrest, Moore spoke to reporters, insisting she did not kill Shakespeare, and saying she did not fear going to jail.

“I’m not running anywhere. I’m not scared. I’m not scared of going to jail for murder because there’s not a jury that is going to convict me,” Moore said on Monday.

Moore will have a hearing to prove the bond money was not raised through illegal means.

There is no word yet on when that hearing will be.
