    A former reality TV show producer is home in Southern California after serving a little more than half of his prison sentence in Mexico for killing his wife while on vacation in 2010.

    Bruce Beresford-Redman, whose credits include "Survivor" and "Pimp My Ride," was back in Gardena on Tuesday after his release from prison on June 20, NBC Los Angeles reported.

    Beresford-Redman reported his wife Mónica missing in April 2010 while the couple and their two children were celebrating her 42nd birthday with a vacation at the luxury Moon Palace Resort in Cancun. Her body was found in a sewer, and an autopsy found she had been strangled.

    Police in Mexico said other hotel guests reported hearing screams coming from the couple's hotel room, where investigators said they discovered blood. Investigators also said they had found Beresford-Redman had recently had an extramarital affair.
