Murder trial begins for 'Hiccup Girl'

NEED TO KNOW
  • Jennifer Mee made headlines in 2007 with an extended bout of hiccups
  • Jury selection now underway for her first-degree murder trial

Jennifer Mee made headlines several years ago when she suffered an extended, incurable bout of hiccups.

Mee suffered from the malady for several weeks in 2007, earning media attention and the nickname "hiccup girl." Now she's back in the headlines -- facing a charge of first-degree murder.

Mee is accused of luring a man to rendezvous, where he was attacked and shot to death. One of her alleged accomplices has been convicted and sentenced to prison for life.

If she's convicted, Mee could face the rest of her own life behind bars. She should find out her fate soon, as jury selection in Mee's murder trial is happening this week.

HLN News Now's Mike Galanos spoke with Josh Rojas from Tampa Bay News 9 and attorney Jeffrey Gold about this unusual case.
