Dee Dee Moore, the woman investigators have been calling a person of interest in the case of murdered lottery winner Abraham Shakespeare, has been arrested and charged with accessory after the fact regarding first-degree murder.
Sheriff David Gee made the announcement at a news conference Tuesday night, where he laid out in more detail the role detectives say Moore played in Shakespeare's death.
Gee said Shakespeare was killed sometime between April 6 and 7th, but still did not say how he died.
Gee then went on to describe Moore taking an active role to hide and cover up Shakespeare's death. He said Moore arranged for a person who was not named in the affidavit to get a backhoe and dig the hole where Shakespeare's body was found.
Gee said that person told investigators where Shakespeare's body was.
Gee reiterated charges Sheriff Grady Judd made earlier, that in December of 2009, Moore took steps to make it appear Shakespeare was still alive. Gee also said she approached someone asking if they knew anyone awaiting sentencing to prison who would admit to killing Shakespeare in return for $50,000.
Gee said she also told an unnamed person that they would have to dig up Shakespeare's body and bury it somewhere else.
Detectives are now searching a property adjacent to the one where Shakespeare's body was found.
