  • CLEARWATER, Florida - In closing arguments, the prosecution painted Jennifer Mee as not the mastermind of murder, but a willing participant in an attempted robbery that ended in the death of a 22-year-old victim.

    "She was the bait," said prosecutor Jan Olney pointing directly at Jennifer Mee. "She was the bait that lured Shannon Griffin to a back alley that was dark where two of her cohorts waited."

    But the defense argued the evidence proving Mee's involvement in Griffin's death simply wasn't there.

    "What witnesses do you have? What documents show that Jennifer Mee, not someone else, but Jennifer Mee had a conscious intent for the robbery to be done," asked Mee's defense attorney John Trevena.

    "I think it's going to be a tough decision," said alternate juror Heather Cundy moments after she was released by the judge following closing arguments. Cundy feels Mee's taped confession may help sway the jury.

    "There's nothing like hearing words out of the person's own mouth," said Cundy who agrees Mee was no mastermind. Cundy says it's still her gut feeling the young defendant will likely be found guilty.

    "It was supposed to be a robbery, it resulted in a murder, and therefore she was still responsible."
