al­len­town, pa.» The trial has been post­poned for for­mer pro­fes­sional wrestling star Jimmy “Su­per­fly” Snuka in the death of his mis­tress more than three decades ago, with his at­tor­ney say­ing he isn’t com­pe­tent for the pro­ceed­ings.

De­fense at­tor­ney Robert Kir­wan II asked a judge Fri­day for a com­pe­tency hear­ing for the 72-year-old de­fen­dant. Kir­wan told the judge that the for­mer WWE wrestler no longer un­der­stands the charges or even knows that he was ar­rested.

Snuka is charged with third-de­gree mur­der and in­vol­un­tary man­slaugh­ter in the death of 23-year-old Nancy Ar­gentino of New York, who was found dead in May 1983.
