The trial for WWE Hall of Famer "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka has been postponed, as his defense attorney says that the former wrestling star isn't competent to stand trial.

Snuka's defense attorney Robert Kirwan II filed a motion for a competency hearing in Lehigh County Court in Pennsylvania. Snuka was set to go on trial for third-degree murder in March.

Snuka was charged with involuntary manslaughter and third degree murder of former girlfriend Nancy Argentino in 1983. Police were called to their hotel room, where Argentino was found dead. Snuka has maintained his innocence throughout the process, saying it was an accident.

According to Kirwan, Snuka's mental and physical health has went downhill over the past several months, to the point where he doesn't even understand that he was arrested.

WWE removed Snuka from their official website last year after charges were filed. The company has yet to comment on removing him from their Hall of Fame, although no physical Hall of Fame actually exists. The company also suspended his Legends contract.

I added a link in the OP to a story that gives some more info. The case is cold and Snuka is at an age and apparent condition that he might die before he serves any time if he did this heinous crime.

Tbh this seems like an appeasement trial, the Judge knows Snuka is beyond any fit state to stand trial yet its going through the motions simply to resolve the accusation.
Its almost like the trials being seen now of sexual assualt, minors abuse & worse that went down back before most of us were even born yet are being contested now because it corrects a wrong but doesn't do so with the purpose of any imprisonment unless irrefutable evidence proves unnavoidable. Examples like Rolf Harris who were punished yet practically every single British TV star doesn't and that's aside from Bill Cosby who took how long to be convicted?
Beyond abuse charges and back to Murder or Manslaughter charges and same applies, look at Pistorius who at first 'escaped' charges only for them to be reversed a few years later. The Legal system is far from consistent and even corrupt within many countries.
