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
