Monica's body was found April 8 in a sewer at the Cancun  resort where she had been staying with her husband and their two young children.

Bruce was questioned and ordered to remain in Mexico, although he has not been charged.

The family plans to bury Beresford-Redman in California, where she has two surviving children, five-year-old Camila and three-year-old Alec.

The children are the subject of a custody battle set to take place in a Los Angeles court on Thursday, between Monica's family and Bruce's parents, David and Juanita Beresford-Redman.

Monica's Los Angeles-based sister Carla declined to comment about the funeral plans.
