October 26, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Jennifer Mee has been charged with first degree murder in Florida on Saturday. The 19-year-old became famous after appearing on the ‘Today´ show for her uncontrollable hiccups that lasted for five weeks in 2007. After her 2007 appearance Jennifer Mee, originally from Tampa Bay came to be known as the “Hiccup Girl.”
Now this girl is facing the biggest hiccup of her life as she and two other guys are facing charges of committing the heinous crime of murdering. The St. Petersburg Police Department’s Sgt. T.A. Skinner told that Mee and the other two guys killed a 22-year-old man named Shannon Griffin.
The incident happened when a robbery went wrong. Mee lured Griffin and then ambushed him when the two men held the victim at a gun point. When Griffin struggled, shots were fired and the man died.
Both the men and Mee accepted their involvement in the incident and till Monday Mee will be in the Pinellas County jail without a bond. It is not known whether she has an attorney for herself but no contacts could be made to her mother as the numbers listed were disconnected.
If she is proved guilty along with two of her partners in crime they might face death penalty. In 2007 she had 50 hiccups in a minute, now this hiccup is going to persist for how long no one knows.
