When we last checked in on the Jimmy Snuka and the charges against him for the murder of Nancy Argentino, it was the revelation from his attorneys that he may only have six months left to live. That was during a hearing where they were arguing the former WWE star is mentally unfit to stand trial.

The ruling for that came in today and all charges against Snuka have been dropped, according to Lehigh Valley News.

That’s because the judge, after reviewing his treatment, ruled his condition is not improving. Prosecutors had previously argued he was faking it but the judge sided with Snuka.

This ends a lengthy legal battle that began in September of 2015 when he was charged with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. For much more on the case and what it was all about click here.
