Milwaukee (AP) — A man who led Milwaukee police to serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer 20 years ago appears to have reached a plea deal in his own criminal case.
Tracy Edwards escaped Dahmer’s Milwaukee apartment in July 1991, leading police and the world to Dahmer’s crimes. This summer, he was charged in the death of a homeless man.
The 52-year-old Edwards is charged with first-degree recklessly endangering safety in the death of 43-year-old Johnny Jordan in July.
A co-defendant has already pleaded guilty.
Edwards pleaded not guilty in August. But online court records indicate he’s expected to plead guilty Jan. 17. A trial date is still set for March.
Edwards’ lawyer Paul Ksicinski said Friday he couldn’t comment. Prosecutor Mark Williams didn’t immediately return a call.
