The Morning Call is reporting that Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka is being charged with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter for the death of his girlfriend in May 1983.
Snuka was arrested Tuesday morning at his home in New Jersey and arraigned later in the afternoon. He was sent to county jail under $100,000 bail.
Leigh Country District Attorney Jim Martin re-opened the case last year after an investigation by The Morning Call raised questions about the death of Snuka’s girlfriend, Nancy Argentino, in May 1983. A never-before-seen autopsy report that labeled the case a homicide was uncovered as part of that investigation.
