Piers Morgan continues his travels through the US to meet some of America’s most notorious female murderers in the second series of this terrifyingly revealing show.
In the third episode, Piers travels to Ocala in Florida to meet Jennifer Mee – once famous across the world as the Hiccup Girl, and now notorious as a murderer serving life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Ten years ago, 15-year-old Jennifer Mee was an ordinary, anonymous teenager from a typical working class family in Florida. Just a few weeks later she was internationally famous due to a case of persistent, debilitating hiccups. But then the hiccups stopped and the fame vanished.
Today, the Jennifer that Piers meets is no longer that naive teen. In a fascinating interview, Piers asks Jennifer to take responsibility for her part in the death of the young man she lured to a dark alleyway where she knew her friends were waiting to rob him.
Under Florida law, because Jennifer set him up, she is as culpable as the shooter. One crucial question drives Piers’ investigation into the case: should Jennifer, who was only 19 at the time of the murder, be kept in prison for the rest of her life even though she did not pull the trigger that killed the innocent victim, nor was at the scene when the bullets were fired?
Killer Women with Piers Morgan: Jennifer Mee airs on Thursday 6 July 2017 from 9.00pm-10.00pm
