Survivor producer Bruce Beresford – Redman testified via conference call from Mexico on Friday in a court hearing held in Los Angeles to determine who would get temporary custody of the couple’s children.
Bruce’s wife, Monica, was found dead in a sewer at a posh Cancun resort and Bruce has been ordered not to leave the country by Mexican police.
The court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com state, “Court contacts Bruce Beresford-Redman via conference call in open court.”
Bruce’s parents, David and Juanita were awarded temporary guardianship of the couple’s two children, Alec and Camila. Monica’s sister, Carla had also applied for temporary guardianship, but she was denied.
The docs state that Bruce’s parents are to have temporary custody through May 20, 2010 and that the children’s passports both American and Brazilian, be turned over to court officials.
Monica’s sister, Carla, and her son are allowed to have visits with the children in the grandparents’ home.
The temporary guardians aren’t allowed to restrict who sees the children. The children are not allowed to leave LA County without a court order.
The next hearing is set for May 20th, 2010.
