The young woman who found herself briefly famous after coming down with a three-week case of the hiccups may soon be heading to prison for 15 years.
At the age of 15, Jennifer Mee enjoyed a brief moment of celebrity when she appeared on a morning talk show with a curious condition — hiccups that just wouldn’t go away. In 2010, the young Florida woman, by then 19, was once again in the headlines, this time facing murder charges.
In April, four Alabama teens–Scott Byrd, Dylan Tyree, Daniel Parnell and Summer Moody–went to Gravine Island in the Tensaw river delta, where they allegedly broke into cabins. Three men who were on the island took notice of the teens, and one of them, authorities say, fired what was meant to be a warning shot. The bullet hit Moody, 17, in the head. She died ten days later.
