TAMPA -- Prosecutors say they won't pursue the death penalty against Dorice "Dee Dee" Moore, accused of killing lottery winner Abraham Shakespeare, taking his money, and telling his loved ones he was alive and in hiding.

Meanwhile, he was really buried under a concrete slab in Plant City.

Hillsborough County prosecutors announced the decision during a hearing Wednesday.

Moore, 38, has been in jail since she was arrested in February, after authorities say she told detectives conflicting stories about the April 2009 slaying.

Stephen Fisher, Moore's court-appointed attorney, also told the court that he is reviewing 61 computer discs that contain surveillance video, recorded statements by Moore and several hundreds pages of bank records.
