As noted earlier, Jimmy Snuka's health has taken a turn for the worse and is reported to have six months to live. To update this report, Snuka's lawyer, Robert Kirwan, said "the former wrestler has suffered a number of infections, and was hospitalized on Monday after the most recent infection led to psychosis and hallucinations." Kirwan also stated that while Snuka's health had improved, he was not fit to travel to his court hearing, although he did listen in via video conferencing.
On June 1st, a judge ruled Snuka was not fit to stand trial for third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter for the 1983 death of Nancy Argentino (Snuka's then girlfriend), due to dementia and other factors.
It should be noted reports of Snuka having "terminal cancer" look to be false, according to Lehigh Valley Live Crime/Breaking News Reporter, Sarah Cassi. Cassi tweeted out that he was indeed terminal, but there was no mention of any kind of cancer.
To clarify, nobody said today it was terminal cancer- just that he's terminal. He's had other health issues since his last court date. https://t.co/RC806HGyvz— Sarah Cassi (@SarahCassi) December 2, 2016
On Friday, the judge said she would need to review records of Snuka's treatment over the last six months and will issue a decision to either hold another review hearing on Snuka's competency, continue to trial, or dismiss the charges.
