12:30 PM PST: TMZ Sports has learned Jimmy has posted bail.

Former WWF superstar "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka -- a member of the WWE Hall of Fame -- will be charged with murdering his girlfriend in an incident that happened 32 YEARS AGO. 

Officials in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania say the 72-year-old will be charged with 3rd degree murder and involuntary manslaughter.

Investigators believe Snuka killed Nancy Argentino following an attack in a motel in Allentown back in 1983. 

According to her autopsy report, recently obtained by The Morning Call -- Argentino suffered multiple cuts and contusions on her entire body. The autopsy says Argentino died of traumatic brain injuries consistent with a moving head striking a stationary object.

The investigation was re-opened after continuous pressure from Argentino's family. 

Snuka has already been arrested -- he was taken into custody at his home in NJ earlier today. He's been booked. Bail has been set at $100,000.
