ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - A teenager once known as the "Hiccup Girl" is one of three people arrested for killing a 22-year-old St. Petersburg man Saturday night.
19-year-old Jennifer Ann Mee admitted to luring the victim, 22-year-old Shannon Griffin, to 511 7th Street North around 10:30 p.m, according to the St. Petersburg Police Department.
Once there, Laron Raiford, 20, and Lamont Newton, 22, robbed him at gunpoint, detectives said. Griffin struggled during the robbery, and was then shot and killed, police said.
All three suspects confessed to their roles in the crime and are now all charged with 1st degree felony murder.
Mee made news across the world several years ago as the teenager who could not stop hiccupping.
Her plight made national news because she kept hiccupping for weeks and weeks and nothing she tried would make them stop.
