LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A Los Angeles federal judge has upheld former
"Survivor" producer Bruce Beresford-Redman's extradition to Mexico to face charges in his wife's death.
In the ruling Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Philip S. Gutierrez wrote that there are many pages of competent evidence that the producer killed his wife during a family vacation in Mexico last year.
The Emmy-nominated producer has been jailed in Los Angeles since
November on a fugitive warrant.
His attorneys filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus in August arguing that his detention was not supported by facts in the case. Gutierrez disagreed, saying all evidence points to a homicide committed by Beresford-Redman.
His defense lawyer says he is weighing his next legal move.
