The charges stem from an incident dating back to 1983, in which prosecutors charge him with the death of his then-girlfriend Nancy Argentino. After three decades, the case finally resurfaced after consistent calls to reopen the case by Argentino’s sister and a series of articles in the local The Allentown Morning call, which focused on the 30th anniversary of Argentino’s death.
During the investigation, it was found that the medical examiner who first performed the autopsy on Argentino stated that the case should be considered a homicide. With these factors, and along with a number of conflicting statements provided by Snuka over the years, the grand jury indicted Snuka in September.
According to 411 Mania, Snuka, 70, currently suffers from stomach cancer and some have questioned his mental capacity to stand trial. Meanwhile, Snuka’s attorney calls the case a “sham.”
