CLEARWATER, Fla. -- A young Florida woman -- known for unstoppable hiccups and now accused of murder -- has been denied bail.

Judge Donald Horrox on Friday denied a motion to set a bond for Jennifer Mee. She remains at the Pinellas County jail.

Earlier this week, Mee and her attorney John Trevena had asked Horrox to set $50,000 bail.

Mee is charged with first-degree murder allegedly luring a 22-year-old man to a meeting where he was robbed and shot. Authorities say they do not believe she fired the gun.

Mee was briefly famous in 2007 because she couldn't stop hiccuping.

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