Weird headline, right? But this is the world we live in. Jennifer Mee, who achieved viral fame for having chronic hiccups for five weeks, has been charged with 1st-degree murder, and her lawyer is contemplating using her alleged Tourette's as a defense.

The 19-year-old lured a 22-year-old online friend to a meeting where he was robbed and shot by two accomplices. According to Forbes:
Her attorney, John Trevena, said she was diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome, a neurological disorder that can cause involuntary movements and speech problems.

"Hiccups are a symptom of Tourette's," Trevena said, declining to be more specific about how the condition might have affected his client's behavior.

Sounds like a stretch! Gawker reports on a radio interview with Jennifer's mom, telling of the "hiccup curse."
I always said, her case of the hiccups wasnt a case of the hiccups, it was a curse of the hiccups. [...] All of a sudden, people knew her name, and she would talk to them on different chat sites. They'd act like they knew her when they really didn't. She's very naive. She was getting herself into stuff where she didn't really realize what she was doing.
Whaaat. New video of "Hiccup Girl" after the jump.
In this video, ABC tells us:
You might remember when she first made headlines back in 2007 for hiccups that wouldn't quit. Well she's in the news for something much worse.

And listen to the line at the end:
We've spent a lot of time looking at her picture and comparing it to that video back in 2007 and yeah, this is her.
WHAAAT. Those crack facial recognition specialists at ABC are on the case.
