Jimmy Snuka may only have six months to live, according to attorney

USA Today

Earlier this year, Jimmy Snuka was declared mentally unfit to stand trial for the murder of Nancy Argentino. Earlier today, his attorneys were back in court to determine that again, though a decision isn’t expected until later.

What came out during the hearing is the fact that the former WWE star may only have six months left to live.

That’s according to a report from Sarah Cassi at Lehigh Valley Live, who noted Snuka’s attorneys revealed he has suffered from infections and was recently hospitalized. He is currently in hospice care and he could die soon.

From the report:

Kirwan said the doctor's prognosis is that if Snuka's health continues to worsen, he may die in the next six months. Prosecutors said they were told by a doctor that Snuka is terminal.

A decision won’t come until the judge reviews records of Snuka’s treatment.
