Fla. judge scolds Dorice Moore, alleged lottery winner killer, for behavior in court
(CBS/AP) TAMPA, Fla. - A Florida judge scolded the woman being tried in the swindling and killing of a lottery winner on Thursday, telling her she shouldn't gesture or nod during witness testimony and evidence.
Dorice Moore is entering her fifth day of trial on Friday in the 2009 shooting death of Abraham Shakespeare, who won a $30 million lottery in 2006. She is charged with first-degree murder.
Judge Emmett Battles appeared to be losing patience with Moore's behavior in court, reprimanding her several times.
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.
Shakespeare's decomposed body was found under a concrete slab and buried in the back of Moore's home in January 2010.
