Jimmy 'Superfly' Snuka Arrested Charged Murder death of Ex- Girlfriend Nancy Argentino in 1983 WWF Jimmy 'Superfly' Snuka Arrested Charged in death of Ex- Girlfriend Nancy Argentino in 1983 WWF Wrestling legend Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka is being charged with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter for the death of his girlfriend more than 32 years ago in an assault at an Allentown area motel, Lehigh County authorities said.
The charges were announced at a news conference Tuesday afternoon. Snuka, 72, was arrested Tuesday morning at his New Jersey home and arraigned at 1:50 p.m. from the Lehigh County Central Booking Center. He was sent to county jail under $100,000 bail.
Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin re-opened the case last year, prompted in part by a Morning Call investigation that raised questions about the death of Snuka's 23-year-old girlfriend, Nancy Argentino, in May 1983. The Call story revealed a never-before-seen autopsy report that labeled the case a homicide.
