New details were released in the murder case against former "Survivor" reality TV producer Bruce Beresford-Redman.

A 45-page extradition memorandum released Monday supports Mexico's extradition request. It will be considered at a May 16 hearing in Los Angeles.

The 39-year-old has been fighting extradition in jail since Nov. 16.

Federal prosecutors say there's probable cause to believe Beresford-Redman killed his wife and should be extradited to Mexico to stand trial.

Bruce Beresford-Redman has publicly said he is innocent but has not yet entered a formal plea.

His wife's body was found last April at a resort in Cancun where the couple was staying. An autopsy says she was struck on the head and asphyxiated.

He is currently being held in a downtown L.A. detention center.
