"Hiccup Girl" charged with murder of Petal native

Petal (WDAM)- A Petal native was shot to death over the weekend in St. Petersburg, Florida in an armed robbery plot involving a woman who made national headlines three years ago for her uncontrollable hiccupping.

19 year old Jennifer Ann Mee and two other men are charged with first degree murder for luring 22 year old Shannon Griffin to an apartment in a robbery attempt. Griffin was shot several times as he struggled with his attackers. Griffin is a native of Petal and still has relatives in the friendly city. Police say Griffin and Mee met on the internet and she lured him to the apartment. Mee made national headlines in 2007 for a five week case of the hiccups.
