Former Survivor producer Bruce Beresford-Redman was extradited from the U.S. to Mexico in order to stand trial in the death of his wife, Monica Beresford-Redman.
The Emmy-nominated producer originally planned to appeal the extradition order last September but eventually decided to adhere to the U.S. court ruling. The U.S. Marshals Services said in a statement Wednesday night that Bruce Beresford-Redman was handed over to Mexican authorities and headed to Cancun.
Monica Beresford-Redman was found dead in a sewer cistern during a family vacation in April 2010. Bruce Beresford-Redman is accused of asphyxiating Monica Beresford-Redman and dumping her body into a wastewater treatment tank. The couple’s 11-year marriage was on the rocks after Monica Beresford-Redman discovered her husband cheating.
If convicted, Bruce Beresford-Redman faces 12 to 30 years in prison.
