Judge Mitchell Beckloff set a trial date of November 8, 2010 to determine who will gain permanent guardianship of Bruce and Monica Beresford-Redman.

Monica was murdered in April in Cancun, Mexico and there’s a warrant for Bruce’s arrest. But Bruce is now back in the U.S. and Mexican authorities have yet to detain him.

Bruce’s parents—David and Juanita—currently have temporary custody over the children 3-year-old Alec and 5-year-old Camila. They are locked in a bitter custody battle with Monica’s sisters.

Neither Bruce nor his parents were in court. And Jeanne Burgos was Monica’s only family member in court Thursday morning.

Lawyers for both sides said they planned to call Bruce as a witness at the trial, and that his deposition also be taken.


Other depositions taken will include various family members and all surviving grandparents.

The Burgos family attorney also requested overnight visits with the children, but the judge asked the parties to come to an agreement out of court. The Burgos sisters wanted more time with Alec and Camila because of summer break.

Jeanne Burgos told exclusively, "I'm very disappointed that the judge didn't grant it."

The Burgos family also wants to bring in a different therapist for the kids, but before making a decision the judge wants more information about Dr. Charlie Sophy, head of the Los Angeles County Dept of Children and Family Services.
