Jeffrey Dahmer survivor has been charged with murder

/*Tracy Edwards*/ was hailed a hero in July 1991. That's when he led police to Dahmer's 17-victims.

The discovery helped end a spree of cannibalistic homicides by one of the country's most notorious murderers.

20-years later, Edwards was arrested and accused of throwing a man to his death off a Milwaukee bridge.

If convicted, Edwards faces 60-years in prison, and could serve time at the very same prison in which /*Dahmer*/ spent his final years before he was beaten to death by a fellow inmate in 1994.

Edwards will enter a plea in December and is scheduled for trial in January.
