WWE Hall Of Famer Jimmy Snuka is being charged with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter for the 1983 murder case involving the death of his girlfriend, Nancy Argentino.
Snuka appeared in court on Friday in Lehigh Valley, PA to determine if he is fit to stand trial. Forensic psychologist doctor Frank M. Dattilio said that Snuka is a “shell of a man” whose brain is “damaged beyond repair from years of wrestling stunts” and that Snuka’s dementia is “worsening by the month,” and he has “serious memory loss.”
Dr. Dattilio also said that the pressure of a trial would cause “severe erosion of Snuka’s emotional state.” According to Dr. Dattilio, Snuka is not able to stand trial.
Dr. Dattilio was the first witness called at Friday’s hearing. The prosecutors will attempt to prove that Snuka is able to stand trial. According to The Morning Call, a final decision is unlikely on Friday.
