CHATTANOOGA - The Chattanooga man accused of killing a dialysis worker will soon go to trial.

Tony Bigoms is charged with first degree murder and abuse of the corpse. Investigators say he killed and dismembered Dana Wilkes' body in November 2012. Court records showed Bigoms was on parole at the time of the murder.

It isn't he first time he's been accused of murder. Prosecutors said he was acquitted of a prior murder, where his DNA was found on the victim.
