"Hiccup Girl" Convicted of Murder Seeks Retrial
ST. PETERSBURG--Two weeks after a jury found a St. Petersburg woman guilty of first-degree, her attorneys have filed a motion seeking a new trial.
Lawyers for Jennifer Mee claim Circuit Judge Nancy Moate Ley committed errors in matters of jury instructions, and they also say new evidence has surfaced about a key witness in the case.
Mee became nationally known as a 15-year-old high school student when she suffered bouts of hiccups that lasted weeks at a time.
In 2010, she was arrested along with two male roommates and charged with first-degree murder.
Police said Mee lured the man to a home, where her roommates planned to rob him. Instead, he was shot and killed.
