Ex-‘Survivor’ Producer Found Guilty of Killing Wife in Mexico

Ex-“Survivor” producer Bruce Beresford-Redmond has been found guilty in the 2010 murder of his wife in Cancun, Mexico.

He was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Beresford-Redmond’s attorney told CBS News he plans on appealing the verdict.

In 2010, Monica Beresford-Redman, 42, was found dead and naked in a sewer on the property of the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun. She was on vacation at the time with her husband, who authorities believed killed her in their room and later stashed her body 75 feet away.

The former TV producer was extradited to Mexico in 2012 when a judge ordered him to remain in the country.

“I am accused of the murder of my wife Monica, a crime I did not commit,” he said in a video diary at the time.

The case was subject of a recent “48 Hours” special on CBS.

Beresford-Redman’s TV credits also include reality shows “Pimp My Ride” and “The Restaurant.”
