Jimmy Snuka Murder Case Officially Going To Trial

The result of today’s hearing on Jimmy Snuka’s murder charges is that the case is now going directly to trial. Per local news outlets WFMZ, The Allentown Morning Call, and Lehigh Valley Live, here’s what you need to know:

  • Snuka’s defense attorney said they’d be willing to skip a preliminary hearing if they were given access to the grand jury transcripts, later saying “Those transcripts are worth their weight in gold.” The prosecution agreed to the deal.
  • They still need to officially arraign Snuka on his charges before a trial.
  • Snuka, who had previously been thought to be cancer-free after surgery, will be starting chemotherapy shortly, so it’s in everyone’s best interest to have a speedy trial.
  • Snuka’s lawyer, Robert Kirwan II, made an odd comment to the assembled media, saying that “Mr. Snuka, if his health continue to deteriorate, he’d like to leave this world knowing that he’s an innocent man, not whatever you think he’s guilty.” Even forgiving the odd syntax, wouldn’t he know if he’s innocent?  He also described the death of Nancy Argentino as  “simply an unfortunate accident…not murder,” though he didn’t give any further details.

Snuka is charged with third degree murder and a lesser included charge of involuntary manslaughter in the 1983 death of girlfriend Nancy Argentino. She died from a fall where here head struck an object on the way down and Snuka told numerous different stories of how, including versions where he pushed her. The investigation stopped suddenly after about two weeks, was left open, and wasn’t touched until the grand jury was impaneled after an investigative article in the Allentown Morning Call.
