Former Survivor producer Bruce Beresford-Redman is dropping his extradition order to Mexico in the death of his wife, Monica Beresford-Redman.
“He feels he is not going to prevail on appeal and he’d like to get moving on proving his innocence,” said Beresford-Redman’s attorney Richard Hirsch.
The 40-year-old is currently being held in a Los Angeles federal prison and could be sent to Mexico within 60 days, according to The Associated Press.
The couple went to Cancun last year in order to save their marriage when the 42-year-old Monica Beresford-Redman was found dead in a sewer cistern.
If convicted of aggravated homicide in Mexico, Beresford-Redman faces up to 30 years in prison.
