TV producer confronted in court by slain wife's family

There were some dramatic moments Friday afternoon in a Los Angeles courtroom between TV producer Bruce Beresford-Redman and his slain wife's family.

Mexican authorities have accused Beresford-Redman of killing his wife, Monica, at a Cancun resort. He has denied any wrongdoing.

He unexpectedly arrived in court Friday for a hearing involving custody of the couple's children. According to City News Service, there was a confrontation between the former "Survivor" producer and his wife's family:

"How could you do that to my sister?"' Jeane Burgos shouted at Beresford-Redman as he was walking away from the courtroom. 

"How could you do that?"' Carla Burgos, another sister of Monica Beresford-Redman, then shouted. "Wake up and smell the real coffee. Divine justice is going to get you."'

Beresford-Redman turned back toward the sisters, but did not respond. An attorney for the sisters, however, chased after him and served him with some legal papers.
