A federal judge has delayed an extradition hearing for a reality TV show producer charged in his wife's death in Mexico to allow his defense team more time to prepare. An order signed Tuesday approved a request by attorneys for Bruce Beresford-Redman to delay the hearing from May 16 until June 27.

Mexican authorities want Beresford-Redman extradited so he can stand trial on an aggravated homicide charge filed after his wife, Monica, was killed at an upscale resort in Cancun last year.

Authorities allege that he killed his wife and placed her body in a sewer during a family vacation.

Beresford-Redman worked on "Survivor" and is a co-creator of the show "Pimp My Ride."

His attorney asked for the delay because of filing requirements in other cases.
