Victim: Abraham Shakespeare
TAMPA, Fla. —

Jurors in the trial of a Lakeland woman accused of killing a Florida lottery winner were escorted to their cars Tuesday evening when court finished for the day.

The jury told the judge one of defendant Dee Dee Moore's witnesses, and several of her family members, made them feel uncomfortable outside the courtroom.

Moore is accused of killing Abraham Shakespeare after befriending him and swindling him for his $17 million winnings.

She faces life in prison if convicted.
