Bruce Beresford-Redman, who has worked as a producer on the reality shows "Survivor" and "Pimp My Ride," returned to Los Angeles County in late May as the investigation continued into his wife's death in Mexico.

Soon after his return, Beresford-Redman was charged by Mexican authorities with the murder of his wife.

"Mr. Beresford-Redman remains prepared to defend himself in a court of law and to answer any and all charges against him," his attorneys said in a statement earlier this year. "He is prepared to surrender himself to the United States Federal Court should extradition proceedings be initiated, and his counsel have contacted the appropriate federal authorities to apprise them of this."

Beresford-Redman has spent much of his recent weeks with his children at the Rancho Palos Verde, California, home he had shared with wife.

"Few people understand or report that he is actually a grieving widower," said Stephen Jaffe, a media consultant for Bruce Beresford-Redman's family. "As a father, he has been diligent and tried to maintain some semblance of normalcy for his children's sake."

Shortly before Mexican authorities charged Beresford-Redman with murder, ABC News confirmed he took out two life insurance policies on his wife a week before her body was found.

Sources told ABC News that one of those life insurance policies paid out $50,000 in case of accidental death while traveling. The other would pay $500,000. The policies were also taken out on the couple's children. The policies were purchased in late March, one from Worldwide Insurance, the other from InsureMyTrip.com.
