LARGO, Fla. (AP) — A Tampa Bay area judge has ruled that "Hiccup Girl" Jennifer Mee can tell her story to the public and the media before her upcoming murder trial.
Judge Nancy Moate Ley made the ruling Friday. Pinellas County prosecutors had asked the judge earlier this week to prevent any interviews Mee had planned to give before her trial, which starts Tuesday.
The sheriff's office will now have to determine if it can accommodate the interviews at the jail, where Mee is being held.
The 22-year-old woman is one of three people accused in the 2010 killing of Shannon Griffin in St. Petersburg.
The case has attracted attention because Mee had previously gained notoriety when she had a case of hiccups that wouldn't stop.
