‘Hiccup Girl’ Granted Separate Trial in Murder Case

A young woman who first attracted national attention for a stubborn case of hiccups will be tried separately from her co-defendants, a judge has ruled. Jennifer Mee, 20, is charged with felony murder for allegedly luring a man she met online into an alleyway where police say her boyfriend, Lamont Newton, and their friend Laron Raiford, robbed and killed him.
