The Mexican murder case involving television producer and former Rancho Palos Verdes resident Bruce Beresford-Redman was featured last week on the CBS television show 48 Hours.
Beresford-Redman was accused of killing his wife, Monica, while on vacation in Cancun in 2010. While authorities said he killed his wife in their hotel room, Beresford-Redman maintained his wife left the hotel and never returned, 48 Hours reported.
As Mexican authorities built a case against him, Beresford-Redman was arrested seven months later and held at the federal detention center in Los Angeles, reported 48 Hours.
According to the show, a year later, Beresford-Redman was extradited back to Mexico to stand trial for murder.
48 Hours interviewed Beresford-Redman inside the Mexican jail he currently calls home. On the show, Beresford-Redman maintained his innocence and said he could face up to 30 years in a Mexican prison if he is convicted.
