A former producer of the CBS reality show “Survivor” who is accused of killing his wife last year during a vacation in Mexico was scheduled for a court appearance today to determine whether he will be extradited to face trial in Mexico, People magazine reports. The producer is Bruce Beresford-Redman.
According to the story: “Attorneys for Beresford-Redman have indicated that they hope to call his 6-year-old daughter to the witness stand at the hearing, but federal prosecutors are expected to argue against the child’s appearance, reports the Associated Press.”
The story cites an affidavit from a family therapist that quotes the daughter saying: "Mommy and Daddy did not yell at each other and never hit each other. Mommy and Daddy never hit each other anywhere, any time."
The story also reports: “At the time of her death, Monica Beresford-Redman, who owned a popular Brazilian restaurant in Los Angeles, had just discovered her husband’s affair with a co-worker. As for the loud noises which erupted from the couple’s room that were reported by other resort guests, the girl also told the therapist that the family was playing a loud, boisterous game.”
Prosecutors are arguing against calling the 6-year-old to the witness stand, saying it’s inappropriate, besides being unnecessary to the extradition hearing.
