CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors and defense attorneys are giving their closing arguments in the trial against a woman who gained fame because of her uncontrolled hiccupping.
Friday was the final day in the trial of Jennifer Mee, the 22-year-old St. Petersburg woman accused of setting up a robbery that went bad and ended in murder.
Mee didn't take the witness stand in her defense during the five-day trial.
Officials say Mee lured the victim to an abandoned home under the pretense of buying marijuana in October of 2010. Once there, two of Mee's friends robbed him at gunpoint — but the victim struggled and was shot four times.
As a 15-year-old, Mee developed a case of the hiccups that wouldn't go away. Videos of her hiccupping gained her national attention.
