TAMPA, Fla. -- Opening statements are scheduled in the trial of a woman charged with killing a Florida lottery winner.
    
Jury selection in the trial of Dorice "Dee Dee" Moore began Monday. Judge Emmett Lamar Battles said he expects opening statements to begin Tuesday.
    
The 40-year-old Moore is charged with first-degree murder. She's accused of killing Abraham Shakespeare of Polk County in April 2009. Shakespeare won a $30 million lottery jackpot in 2006.
    
Authorities say Moore befriended Shakespeare, swindled him out of money and then killed him. His body was found under a concrete slab behind a home detectives say was owned by Moore's ex-boyfriend in Hillsborough County.
    
The trial is expected to last two weeks. A pool of 100 prospective jurors was screened on Monday.
