Prosecutors and defense attorneys agree that Shakespeare had already spent the majority of his $14 million, after-tax lottery winnings by the time he met Moore in 2008. Detectives say Moore befriended Shakespeare, claiming that she was writing a book about him. Documents show that she transferred hundreds of thousands of dollars from his bank accounts to hers and she took over his home mortgage.

Shakespeare's decomposed body was found under a concrete slab and buried in the back of Moore's home in January of 2010. Medical examiners testified that the 43-year-old had been shot twice in the chest. Moore says she did not kill him and no one else has been charged in his death.

Moore's lawyer said most of the evidence against his client is circumstantial and that there's nothing tying Moore to the gun used to kill Shakespeare.
