A Florida woman who became famous for her uncontrollable hiccupping has been found guilty of first-degree murder.

A Pinellas County jury deliberated four hours Friday night before delivering the guilty verdict against 22-year-old Jennifer Mee.

Mee wept in the courtroom as the verdict was read.

Officials say Mee lured the victim to an abandoned home under the pretense of buying marijuana in October of 2010. Once there, two of Mee's friends robbed him at gunpoint — but the victim struggled and was shot four times.

As a 15-year-old, Mee developed a case of the hiccups that wouldn't go away. Videos of her hiccupping, and of her trying to quell the hiccups, gained her national attention.
