Police Charge WWE Legend Jimmy Snuka With Murder 32 Yrs After Death of His Girlfriend

1990s wrestling legend Jimmy Snuka has been arrested for the death of his girlfriend who died in 1983. Authorities say he killed her in a case of domestic abuse turned deadly.

Suka, who is now 72-years-old, stands charged in the death of Nancy Argentino who died in a hospital in Pennsylvania after being found beaten nearly to death in a hotel room.

“Snuka had been at a WWF taping at the Allentown Fairgrounds on May 10, 1983, and returned to his Whitehall Township motel room to find Argentino, of Brooklyn, gasping for air and oozing yellow fluid from her mouth and nose, records show.

Argentino was pronounced dead at Lehigh Valley Hospital the next day. An autopsy determined she died of traumatic brain injuries and she suffered more than two dozen cuts and bruises — a possible sign of “mate abuse” — on her head, ear, chin, arms, hands, back, buttocks, legs and feet.”

Snuka was never charged and went on to wrestle in the WWE and AWA into the 90s, and in 1996 was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Snuka continued to make sporadic appearances at WWE events, and his daughter, Tamina Snuka, is a current WWE Diva. Earlier this month, Snuka’s wife Carole revealed that Snuka is battling stomach cancer. Snuka was sent to Lehigh County Jail in Pennsylvania. According to Lehigh Valley Live, Lehigh Valley District Attorney Jim Martin “Snuka ‘was in the process of posting bail.’”

A new problem to wrestle with.
