ST. PETERSBURG — A young Florida woman known for unstoppable hiccups who is now charged with murder is asking a judge to set her bail.
Jennifer Ann Mee and her attorney John Trevena appeared before a judge Tuesday and asked him to set $50,000 bail. The judge said he will issue a ruling Friday.
Mee is charged with first-degree murder after police say she lured a 22-year-old man to a vacant home where he was robbed and shot. Authorities say they do not believe Mee fired the gun.

Trevena says she has Tourette’s Syndrome, a neurological disorder that can cause involuntary movements and speech problems.

There were stretches where we played […]
