TV producer Bruce Beresford Redman arrested in wife’s murder
November 18, 2010
(ChattahBox Celebrity News) – Justice has moved slowly in this case but it looks like Monica Beresford Redman’s might finally get their day in court. Reality TV producer Bruce Beresford Redman was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon by U.S. Marshals and FBI agents at his Rancho Palos Verdes home, five months after Mexican authorities accused him of killing his wife. The sources said he was home alone at the time and offered no resistance.
Monica Beresford Redman’s body was found April 8 in a septic tank at the luxury hotel where the couple was staying outside the resort in Cancun. Family members have said that she and her husband had gone to Mexico in an effort to reconcile their troubled marriage, after Bruce reportedly had a torrid six-month long affair with a casting director. Mexican officials said she died of “asphyxia by suffocation.” Beresford-Redman was detained as a suspect in Monica’s death and was later released. Beresford-Redman returned to the Los Angeles area without his passport in June even though Mexican officials had ordered him to stay in their country.
Beresford Redman has repeatedly denied that he had anything to do with his wife’s death, but has not said whether he would fight extradition, which could take months or even years. According to MSNBC, Bruce was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals and FBI agents. He is scheduled to appear Wednesday in U.S. District Court in downtown Los Angeles.
