The Southern California reality TV producer accused of murdering his wife in Mexico is fighting extradition.Prosecutors say attorneys for Bruce Beresford-Redman have filed an appeal to try to block his extradition from Rancho Palos Verdes to Mexico.

The filing asks a higher court to consider whether the arrest warrant is even valid.

Quintana Roo state prosecutor Rodolfo Garcia says the petition arrived Friday.

Beresford-Redman is charged with killing his wife, Monica, while the two vacationed at a Cancun resort in April.

He denies the charges.

His lawyers said Thursday that he would surrender to U.S. authorities if necessary, but he intends to fight extradition.
