MILWAUKEE (AP) — The man who led police to serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer 20 years ago is due back in court on a charge stemming from the death of a man who was thrown off a bridge into the Milwaukee River.

Fifty-two-year-old Tracy Edwards has pleaded not guilty to first-degree recklessly endangering safety.

Edwards and a co-defendant, 44-year-old Timothy Carr, are charged in connection with the death of 43-year-old Johnny Jordan, who drowned in the river July 26.

Edwards and Carr are scheduled to appear in Milwaukee County Circuit on Monday for a scheduling conference.

Edwards was in the headlines in 1991 when he escaped from Dahmer’s apartment and led police to him.
