CLEARWATER, Fla. - Jennifer Mee cannot keep it together in court.
After a hearing this morning, Judge Donald Horrox says he wants more time to decide if bond should be set for Jennifer Mee, known as "Hiccup Girl."
For more than one hour, Mee sniffled, cried, and hiccupped while lawyers asked witnesses to speak.
Mee's attorney, John Trevena, asked the judge to set bond for his client, who is charged with first degree murder.
Detectives say Mee lured Shannon Griffin to a dark area in late October, so Lamont Antonio Newton and Laron Cordale Raiford could rob him. Then gun shots rang out. Griffin died after being shot once in the shoulder and three times in the chest.
Mee's mother, Rachel Robidoux told the judge that if her daughter got out of jail, Mee would come live with her in Hernando County. Robidoux would also make sure Mee attends every future court proceeding.
Prosecutors called homicide detective Dave Wawrzynski to say a few things. He told the judge that Mee laughed and joked after her arrest.
Griffin's cousin also spoke during the hearing. He said the victim thought he was going on a date with Mee. Griffin recently moved to Pinellas County to live with his cousin and start a new life.
In 2007, Mee made national headlines because she could not stop hiccupping.
