2 witnesses back defense theory in 'Survivor' producer's facing Mexican murder trial
CANCUN, Mexico (AP) ' Lawyers for a U.S. reality television producer facing trial for allegedly murdering his wife at a Mexican resort have called two witnesses to testify they saw the victim leave her hotel to go shopping three days before she was found dead.
Prosecutors have said Monica Beresford-Redman did not leave the hotel and was killed there by her husband. Former "Survivor" producer Bruce Beresford-Redman has said his wife left the hotel and disappeared.
A taxi driver and craft-store owner testifying Friday in a preliminary hearing say they saw the victim leave the hotel, take a cab and buy about $100 worth of items.
The body of Monica Beresford-Redman was found in a sewer cistern during a family vacation in April 2010.
