Prosecutor: Give mental treatment to wrestler in murder case
ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) Prosecutors want to force pro wrestling star Jimmy ''Superfly'' Snuka to have mental health treatment now that a judge has ruled he's mentally incompetent to stand trial in the death of his girlfriend in eastern Pennsylvania in 1983.
Judge Kelly Banach ruled June 1 that she doesn't believe the 73-year-old wrester was faking mental infirmity.
As a result, the (Allentown) Morning Call (jhttp://bit.ly/28MR2zb ) says prosecutors want the judge to force Snuka into outpatient treatment for 60 days to determine whether he can become mentally competent.
Snuka, a native of Fiji who lives in New Jersey, was charged last year in the death of 23-year-old Nancy Argentino, whose body was found in their Whitehall Township hotel room. Prosecutors allege she was beaten while Snuka has claimed she died from a fall.
