Judge set to decide if Jimmy Snuka is mentally competent to stand murder trial

The Associated Press is reporting that a Pennsylvania judge is set to hear testimony today on whether WWE Hall of Famer “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka is mentally competent to stand trial in the death of his mistress Nancy Argentino, who died in 1983.

The former WWE Superstar stands charged with third degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. Snuka has already pleaded not guilty. However his attorney says that Snuka, who is 72 years old, is suffering from dementia and post-concussion syndrome and does not understand the charges or even knows that he was arrested. He also has stomach cancer.

The Snuka/Argentino case was re-opened in 2013 by Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin after some excellent work by a couple of journalists working for The Morning Call newspaper who exposed a never-before-seen autopsy report that labeled the death as a homicide.
