CANCUN, Mexico - A Mexican judge issued an arrest warrant on Monday for a former producer of the hit U.S. television series "Survivor" on a charge of murdering his wife in a luxury hotel in the beach resort of Cancun in April.

The body of Bruce Beresford-Redman's Brazilian wife was found in a drainage pipe at the Moon Palace hotel a day after witnesses saw them arguing on the grounds of the hotel the night of the killing, according to police.

Francisco Alor, attorney general for the state of Quintana Roo, where Cancun is located, confirmed the warrant was issued. "The investigation ... has been finished and the corresponding evidence has been included in the case file," Alor said.

Mexican authorities seized Beresford-Redman's passport and ordered him to remain in Mexico after naming him the prime suspect in the case. But he left the country under unclear circumstances and is now in the United States.

Alor declined to comment when asked if his office would seek Beresford-Redman's extradition to Mexico.

Beresford-Redman's attorney said last week that Mexican prosecutors were more interested in protecting the tourism industry by framing his client than properly investigating the murder.
