Cancún, Quintana Roo, Mexico - On Wednesday, Bruce Beresford-Redman arrived in Mexico after being extradited from the U.S. to face a homicide charge for the April 8, 2010 alleged murder of his wife, Monica Burgos Beresford-Redman, 42, originally from Brazil. Beresford-Redman is expected to be transfer from a Mexico City jail to Cancún on Wednesday or early Thursday to face a murder charge preliminary hearing. If convicted Beresford-Redman, the former producer of the "Survivor" TV show is facing up to 40 years in prison, instead of life.
The couple and their two children were vacationing at the Moon Palace Hotel resort in Cancún when Monica disappeared and later discovered inside a septic tank. Hotel employees told investigators that the couple had a confrontational argument that drew concern before she disappeared, which the couple's 6-year-old daugther confirmed.
The Quintana Roo state Attorney General's Office (PGR) reported that during the initial investigation, Beresford-Redman was ordered to remain in Mexico, but he left the country without authorization to avoid prosecution. He returned to the U.S. and Mexico issued an international warrant and an extradition request for Beresford-Redman.
He was detained in Los Angeles, California by federal authorites since November. He lost an appeal in a U.S. court to avoid extradition to Mexico in December.
