    More than 30 years after the girlfriend of pro wrestling legend Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka died under mysterious circumstances, the wrestling Hall of Famer faces grand jury charges that he killed her.

    Police arrested Snuka, a.k.a. James Wiley Smith Reiher, Tuesday at his New Jersey home and charged him with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter in the 1983 death of his then-girlfriend, Nancy Argentino, in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley.

    I guess it's better late than never. I really don't see how it took this long. His lies and explanations of events were bull crap since day one. Jmo.

    I did NOT expect this!


    (CNN)James Snuka, who rose to fame in the 1980s as professional wrestler Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, was charged Tuesday with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter in the 1983 slaying of Nancy Argentino, his then-girlfriend.

    Lingering questions about what happened to Argentino, Snuka's 23-year-old paramour at the time of her death, have long dogged the Fiji-born wrestler famous for his acrobatics.

    In May 1983, Snuka was an up-and-coming superstar in the fledgling World Wrestling Federation, now called the WWE, which in those days taped matches in Allentown, Pennsylvania, for television broadcast.

    According to Martin, Snuka, then 39 and with a wife and four kids in North Carolina, was staying in an Allentown-area motel with Argentino,

    On the night of May 10, paramedics responding to a 911 call at the George Washington Motor Lodge arrived to discover Argentino unresponsive.

    Jimmy (Superfly) Snuka unfit for murder trial, lawyer says

    "A lawyer for legendary wrestler Jimmy Snuka says the Superfly’s decades in the ring left him too punch-drunk to face murder charges in the 1983 death of his girlfriend...
    Snuka was charged Tuesday with murder and involuntary manslaughter in the May 11, 1983, death of his 23-year-old girlfriend Nancy Argentino of Brooklyn..."
