Mexico Producers Wife Killed

The mother of a Hollywood television producer recently released from a Mexican prison for the killing of his wife in 2010 was named the guardian of the estate of his two children.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Small on Thursday granted a petition filed in April by Juanita Beresford-Redmond, which places her in charge of their financial affairs.

Bruce Beresford-Redman was sentenced to 12 years in a Mexican prison, according to his mother Juanita Beresford-Redman, although the charges he was convicted of were not immediately clear. Jane Yamamoto reports for the NBC4 News at 11 p.m. on Thursday, March 12, 2015.

She is the mother of Bruce Beresford-Redmond, who returned to California earlier this year after serving 7 1/2 years of a 12-year prison sentence imposed on him in March 2015 in Mexico for the death of 41-year-old Monica Beresford-Redmond. Her body was found in April 2010 in a sewer at the Moon Palace Hotel in Cancun, where the couple was vacationing.

Juanita Beresford-Redmond and her late husband, David Beresford Redmond, who died in Nov. 18 at age 85, were both guardians of their grandchildren. He also was the guardian of the children's estate until his death.

Bruce Beresford-Redman has been released from Mexican prison after being convicted of killing his wife. Angie Crouch reports for NBC4 News at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2019.

She now fills the dual rule of guardian of the persons and the estate of her granddaughter, who is now 14 years old, and her grandson, who is currently 12.
