Wrestling legend Jimmy "Superfly" Sunka is being charged with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter for the death of his girlfriend — over 32 years ago.
According to reports, the 72-year-old was arrested on Tuesday and sent to Lehigh County jail under $100,000 bail. Sunka was the only person of interest when Nancy Argentino died on May 10, 1983, though he was never charged.
Last year, the case was reopened after a new autopsy report surfaced which labeled it a homicide.

On the night in question, the WWE star allegedly returned to his motel room after a wrestling show to find his 23-year-old girlfriend injured and gasping for air — she died the following day of brain injuries.
Originally, Snuka told the responding police officer and four hospital attendants that Argentino hit her head after he shoved her. But then his story changed, he told detectives in his official interview that she hit her head on the side of the highway after she slipped on concrete.
The autopsy results showed that Argentino had no gravel on her scalp, and was found to be struck by a stationary object.
We're not sure what exactly happened that 1983 night, but we hope justice prevails and the Argentino family finally gets the closure they've needed for the past 30 years.
