Homicide charges have been dropped against73-year-old former professional wrestler Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka by a Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, judge. Snuka was accused of killing his girlfriend, Nancy Argentino, more than 30 years ago.
Yahoo Sports reports Judge Kelly L. Banach ruled in a one-sentence decree that Snuka is not competent to stand trial, saying “it would be unjust to resume the prosecution.”
Doctors called by the defense told the court that Snuka is in hospice care and has only six months to live; however psychiatrists called by the prosecution say that Snuka is faking dementia for the judge and the cameras.
Argentino was 23 when she died in 1983, allegedly after being rushed to a hospital from Snuka’s Whitehall Township hotel room with a serious head injury, the Allentown Morning Call reports.
Initially, Snuka pleaded not guilty to the third-degree and involuntary manslaughter charges.
