LOS ANGELES – The parents of a TV producer whose wife was killed during a Mexican vacation will be guardians of the couple’s children.

City News Service says Wednesday’s agreement means a custody trial will be avoided over the 5-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son of former ‘Survivor‘ producer Bruce Beresford-Redman and his slain wife, Monica.

Two of the mother’s sisters had sought custody, but agreed to give it to David and Juanita Beresford-Redman, who have been serving as temporary guardians.

Bruce Beresford-Redman has been living with his parents and the children in Rancho Palos Verdes.

Mexican authorities have a warrant for his arrest in his wife’s April killing in Cancun. He returned to Los Angeles before it was issued.
