    Former WWF star Jimmy Snuka was arrested and charged with the death of his 1983 girlfriend, Nancy Argentino, on Tuesday, reports The Morning Call publication.

    Snuka was arrested at his home in New Jersey on Tuesday morning, then arraigned in Pennsylvania at the Lehigh County Central Booking Center.

    Snuka is currently jailed on $100,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is set for September 21.

    Snuka was charged with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter after a Pennsylvania grand jury reviewed the cold case and submitted their findings for a judge to review.

    This followed Lehigh County D.A. Jim Martin re-opening the case in 2014 after new information was discovered from a records search. Included was documentation by pathologist Isidore Mihalakis recommending that Argentino's death be investigated as a homicide.

    In 1985, the Argentino family won a $500,000 wrongful death case against Snuka, but Snuka never paid because he claimed he was broke.
