'Hiccup Girl' Charged with First Degree Murder

10/25/2010 9:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Mee -- better known as "Hiccup Girl," after her appearance on the "Today" show back in 2007 -- was charged with first degree murder in Florida this weekend.

Hiccup Girl arrested - Jennifer Mee.
According to police, Mee was a key member of a robbery-gone-wrong Saturday night -- in which she lured a man into an ambush, in which he was robbed at gunpoint by two men.

Cops say the victim struggled -- and was shot and killed at the scene.

According to police, Mee and the other two suspects have "admitted to their involvement" in the crime -- and have each been charged with 1st degree murder.

All three could face the death penalty if convicted.

Mee became mildly famous after she appeared on "Today" back in 2007 -- suffering from a condition which made her hiccup 50 times a minute for five weeks.


Unlike her current situation, the hiccup thing just went away over time.

BassPlayer you are right, watching that video it seems as though she was totally faking. On the Today Show one day, spending the rest of your life in prison the next, oh the irony.

I remember when that show aired about her having hiccups. At the time I thought she had some psychological problem that made her hiccup as someone else stated she'd speak a whole sentence then hiccup. That was obviously some kind of attention seeking.
Look what she's done now!
Wonder with all the stress of facing the death penalty if her hiccups return???

She must have had the hiccups when she arched her eyebrows.

You would hope she would have wrote some book, on "hiccup cures" and other home remedies to set up her next "15 minutes", IMO, that might have been a better way to go.(Book signings, Talk show gigs, riding on the tails of her "hiccup glory days" Except murder is "pretty trendy" these days, and probably will have "more legs" in the end, but I'd think she would have preferred a tricked out Escalade, instead of just money, to keep her in "prison smokes"

yikes. i remember hearing about her a couple of years back but i never saw any video of it until today. it does seem convenient that they happen right after her sentences are completed. i've had the hiccups bad a bunch of times & they'd stop me in mid-sentence sometimes. 50 a minutes would leave virtually no time to have any conversation at all.
