Patrice notes that about the time Snuka married her, the murder allegations began to surface about Snuka and his relationship with Nancy Argentino. She notes that Gino didn’t particularly care for Snuka to be around Patrice, but she notes how kind Snuka was to her and says the same for his mother. Snuka was indicted for third-degree manslaughter charges in September of 2015, who plead not guilty in the case. Snuka was found unfit to stand trial in June 2016 due to a diagnosis of dementia and passed away on January 17, 2017.
