Former Survivor television producer Bruce Beresford-Redman may be extradited to Mexico to face charges that he murdered his wife while on vacation in Cancun in 2010. A federal judge in Los Angeles ruled yesterday that there was enough probable cause for extradition.
The LA Times has more details on the case:
Beresford-Redmand is accused of asphyxiating Monica Beresford-Redman in April 2010 then dumping her body into a wastewater treatment tank.
The family vacation to Mexico was a last-ditch effort to repair the Rancho Palos Verdes couple’s troubled 11-year marriage, according to U.S. prosecutors and Mexican police, who said Bruce Beresford-Redman’s wife had caught her husband cheating and left him briefly in the month before her death.
U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton will now be the ultimate arbiter of whether or not Beresford-Redman’s is sent to Mexico to stand trial.
