TAMPA, Florida (WFLA) -- Prosecutors called her a con artist who stole the last of a Florida Lottery winner's millions, then killed him.

Defense attorneys said Dorice Donegan "Dee Dee" Moore saw Abraham Shakespeare killed at the hands of drug dealers and concealed his death because she feared retribution against her family.

After three hours of deliberation, a 12-person jury weighed the evidence and chose to believe prosecutors.

Moore has been found guilty of first degree murder in the death of Shakespeare, who won a $30 million jackpot in 2006. She was quickly sentenced after the verdict to life in prison without parole.
