His estranged in-laws are also fighting for custody.

Bruce is suspected of murdering his wife Monica during their recent vacation in Mexico. Her body was discovered inside a septic tank near the hotel where the couple was staying. He went to court ex-parte on Thursday in the custody matter and the judge scheduled a hearing for Friday.
