According to recent reports, the trial for Jimmy Snuka’s third-degree murder charges has been delayed yet again after a hearing regarding Snuka’s mental competency was pushed back to May 30th.
The hearing was originally set to determine if Snuka was mentally fit to stand trial. He faces charges of involuntary manslaughter and third-degree murder in the death of his girlfriend Nancy Argentino in May of 1983.
With the delay in the hearing and trial, mental health experts will now have more time to examine Snuka to see if he understands the charges against him and whether he can stand trial.
Snuka’s lawyer claims the WWE Hall of Famer has post-concussion and dementia and doesn’t fully understand what he’s facing.
