Man gets 4 years in Milwaukee bridge death

A man accused alongside a Jeffrey Dahmer survivor of throwing another man to his death from a Milwaukee bridge has been sentenced to four years in prison.

Timothy Carr pleaded guilty to first-degree recklessly endangering safety. The 45-year-old was sentenced Friday to four years in prison and five years of extended supervision.

According to a criminal complaint, Carr and Tracy Edwards threw 43-year-old Johnny Jordan head first from the downtown Milwaukee bridge during an argument in July. Jordan drowned.

Edwards is known as the man who escaped from Dahmer's apartment in 1991 and led police to the serial killer.

The 52-year-old Edwards has a hearing set for a plea deal Monday.
