Florida "Hiccup Girl" charged with murder

Police: Jennifer Mee, AKA "Hiccup Girl," is charged with first-degree murder

A Florida teenager who gained national notoriety for a case of the hiccups that lasted for weeks in 2007 has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder, authorities said.

Jennifer Mee, 19, was arrested and charged Sunday, according to jail booking information on the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office website. In 2007, Mee's non-stop hiccups gained national attention. She earned the nickname "Hiccup Girl" and appeared multiple times on NBC's "Today" show.

Mee and two others - Laron Raiford, 20, and Lamont Newton, 22 - were arrested and accused of fatally shooting a man during an armed robbery attempt in St. Petersburg, Florida, Saturday night. FULL STORY

    LegalizeSanity. Fuk you. It's my opinion, you are an agenda driven fruitcake and if you compare statistics you will discover, you fuk, that I am right.
    Someday death penalty executions are going to be carried out immediately. So prepare yourselves. Don't write anything against it, because your input makes no difference.
    It just angers me that you could be so dumb.

    I felt this is a warning to all dont meet with strangers on the internet no matter if there imfamouse for hiccups it can lead to murder. That guy didnt think he was going to be dead. Too many time people ignore warnings about giving information and meeting people on the internet you just dont or you will end up like this guy.

    OK, Jim's cognitive part of his brain is one beer short of a six pack, but aren't you all being kind of harsh on the guy?
