Producer Charged With Killing His Wife Due Back In Court

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An attorney for a reality TV producer accused of killing his wife in Mexico is calling his client’s arrest in Los Angeles unconstitutional.

Former “Survivor” producer Bruce Beresford-Redman has been jailed since Nov. 16, when federal agents arrested him on a fugitive warrant.

He had been sought in Mexico after his wife was killed at a swank Cancun resort during an April vacation.

Defense attorney Richard Hirsch argued in a court filing Monday that prosecutors did not submit evidence to support the warrant for Beresford-Redman.

The producer is due in court later in the day for a bail review hearing, but Hirsch’s motion asks a judge to release him immediately.

Prosecutors say Beresford-Redman is a flight risk.
