A Los Angeles judge has ordered a trial to determine whether the sister or the in-laws of a "Survivor" producer's wife who was found slain in Mexico will be named guardian of the couple's two young children. At a hearing Thursday, the judge in the case extended temporary guardianship of the children to David and Juanita Beresford-Redman, the parents of TV producer Bruce Beresford-Redman.

The body of his late wife, Monica Beresford-Redman, was discovered in April in Cancun. Bruce Beresford-Redman -- a former "Survivor" producer and "Pimp My Ride" creator -- is barred from leaving Mexico and his passport has been confiscated.

Carla Burgos, the woman's sister, is also seeking guardianship of the kids.

A trial date is expected to be set June 17.
