Feds fight producer's bid to overturn extradition
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Federal prosecutors are asking a judge to reject a reality TV producer's petition to overturn an extradition order on allegations that he killed his wife during a vacation in Mexico.
The filing Monday by prosecutors in Los Angeles argues that attorneys for ex-"Survivor" producer Bruce Beresford-Redman haven't presented credible conflicting evidence that would warrant overturning the order authorizing his return to Cancun to stand trial.
Beresford-Redman filed a brief in September arguing that the magistrate judge's extradition ruling didn't take into account evidence favorable to him. He was charged with aggravated homicide after his wife Monica was found dead at an upscale resort in April 2010.
The latest filing says the judge considered evidence presented by Beresford-Redman, but didn't find it compelling.
