Jimmy Snuka Accused In Death 32 Years Ago

Wrestling legend Jimmy Snuka has been charged with third-degree murder.

The charges are related to the death, 32 years ago, of his girlfriend, Nancy Argentino.

Argentino, 23, had suffered a traumatic brain injury before she died, TheWrap reports. A recent review of the case led to the wrestler being charged in her death.

Argentino was pronounced dead after authorities were called to a hotel room near Allentown in May 1983.

Snuka, now living in Waterford Township, New Jersey, wrote in his 2012 autobiography that he was innocent in her death, which he said ruined his life. He said he never hit or threatened her.

Court records indicate that Snuka was arraigned Tuesday afternoon and sent to Lehigh County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
