‘Hiccup Girl’ arrested for murder


The American teen who whose devastating battle with hiccups brought her worldwide attention three years ago is making headlines again, but for all the wrong reasons.

Jennifer Mee was arrested on Sunday, together with two others for the murder of 22-year-old Shannon Griffin during an armed robbery gone wrong.

According to St. Petersburg Police Sgt. T.A. Skinner, “Jennifer Mee lured the victim to the address… and Laron Raiford and Lamont Newton robbed him at gunpoint and took miscellaneous items from his person. All three suspects admitted to their involvement and were charged with 1st degree felony murder.”

The three are accused of shooting and killing a man using a .38-caliber revolver, according to an arrest affidavit. The victim “received three gunshot wounds to the chest and one gunshot wound to the shoulder,” the affidavit said.

The 19-year-old, who hiccupped up to 50 times a minutes for five weeks, became quite the media sensation in 2007 and appeared on The Today Show several times.
