LOS ANGELES (AP) - A court has granted temporary custody of the children of a reality show producer and his deceased wife to the children's grandparents.
Los Angeles Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini says a judge granted temporary custody to the grandparents during a hearing Friday. He did not have more information, but a source familiar with the case who was not authorized to speak publicly says custody was given to Bruce Beresford-Redman's parents.
Mexican authorities consider Bruce Beresford-Redman a suspect in his wife's death and are not allowing him to leave the country. Monica Beresford-Redman's body was found in a Cancun sewer on Thursday with signs of traumatic injuries.
Her sister also petitioned Friday for custody of the children, ages 5 and 3.
