TAMPA - Here are five things you need to know happening in Florida on Tuesday, August 27.
(1) "Hiccup Girl" murder case trial
One of Jennifer Mee's co-defendants in her murder case is scheduled to go on trial in Clearwater on Tuesday.
Mee, better known as the "Hiccup Girl" for a case of the hiccups that lasted for months in 2007, is one of three people charged in the murder of Shannon Griffin.
Police say in 2010, the then 19-year-old Mee lured Giffin when Laron Raiford and Lamont Newton robbed him at gunpoint. Officials say Griffin struggled with the two men and was shot several times.
All three are charged with first-degree murder.
It is not clear whether Raiford or Newton will go on trial today. If the attorneys defending the men can not come to an agreement which suspect's trial will start, the judge in the case is expected to decide for them.
The decision could be made during a hearing which begins at 8:30 a.m. at the Pinellas County Courthouse in Clearwater. Jury selection is expected to begin immediately after a decision is made.
Mee's trial is not scheduled to begin until September at the earliest.
(2) St. Petersburg Lens Pier referendum
Voters in St. Petersburg can make their choice on the future of the St. Pete Pier during a referendum on Tuesday.
The referendum is asking voters whether the city's agreement with Michael Maltzan Architecture to build the new Lens Piers project should be terminated.
A "yes" vote is for the termination of the agreement, while a "no" vote signifies a voter wants the Lens project to continue.
(3) St. Petersburg mayoral primary
Voters in St. Petersburg are also being asked to choose the next mayor for the city on Tuesday.
Five candidates are running: Anthony Cates III, Paul Congemi, former City Councilwoman Kathleen Ford, State Representative Rick Kriseman and current Mayor Bill Foster.
If one candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote during today's primary election, that candidate will automatically be declared the winner and no runoff election will be required.
Otherwise, the two candidates who receive the most votes in today's election will advance to the general election on November 4.
(4) Los Angeles Angels vs. Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays will look to break their two game winning streak when they host the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Tropicana Field on Tuesday night.
The Rays have won 12 of their last 13 games against the Angels.
Tampa Bay will send Roberto Hernandez to the mound. He is 0-2 with a 7.53 ERA in three starts for the Rays in August.
The Angels will counter with C.J. Wilson. Over his last 13 starts Wilson is 9-1 with a 2.63 ERA. However, he has struggled with a 6.56 ERA in his last four starts against the Rays.
