WWE star Jimmy ‘Superfly’ Snuka charged with girlfriend’s 1983 murder
ALLENTOWN, Penn. — Professional wrestling star Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka has been charged with his girlfriend’s 1983 murder, according to the Morning Call.
Snuka, 72, was arrested at his New Jersey home Tuesday morning and arraigned at 1:50 p.m. from the Lehigh County Central Booking Center.
Nancy Argentino, 23, died after being found suffering from traumatic brain injuries, as well as a more than a dozen cuts and bruises in an Allentown, Penn., motel room in 1983, a never-before-seen autopsy report revealed last year.
The autopsy labeled her death as a homicide, which led to a grand jury reopening the investigation into her death.
Snuka, who was one of the World Wrestling Federation’s biggest stars at the time of Argentino’s death, was a person of interest in the case but was never charged.
