Former Survivor producer, Bruce Beresford Redman’s ex-sisters-in-law, are asking a judge to grant them custody of his two children from his marriage to Monica Burgos, whom he is charged with murdering, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Monica was murdered in Cancun, Mexico over a year and a half ago, and her husband has been charged with the murder. Bruce is currently in jail in Los Angeles, as he appeals a judge’s recent decision to have him formally extradited back to Mexico to face charges.
Monica’s sisters, Jeane and Carla Burgos are asking Judge Mitchell Beckloff to grant them custody of Camila and Alec, who are being cared for by Bruce’s parents, David and Juanita Beresford Redman.
The sisters claim that David and Juanita have been consumed with devoting their attention to their son’s defense, and have not been focusing on the kids. Furthermore, the court docs state: “They also blame the maternal aunts, Carla and Jeane for their son’s predicament and have made every effort to punish Carla and Jeane by attempting to alienate them from the children.”
Bruce’s parents’ ages and state of health are also a concern to the sisters. “The current guardians are incapable of performing their duties. Specifically, David is 78 years old and Juanita is 74 years old. Juanita suffers from lupus and rheumatoid arthritis and has been too ill to act as a monitor during several visitations,” the documents state.
A hearing has been set for September 8 to determine the matter.
