In 2010, the couple went on a family vacation in Cancun, Mexico, which according to the Daily Mail was an attempt to mend their marriage after Burgos discovered that her husband had cheated on her.

Beresford-Redman reported his wife missing on April 6, 2010 after claiming that she didn’t return from a solo shopping trip. Two days later her naked body was found in a sewer cistern and authorities claimed that she had been strangled.

According to the Daily Mail, Quintana Roo state prosecutor Gaspar Armando Garcia Torres revealed that Beresford-Redman had been found guilty and was sentenced to 12 years in prison by Judge Víctor Manuel Echeverria Tun.

Beresford-Redman’s family is appalled by the judge’s ruling and issued a statement via Facebook.

“We are appalled and disgusted with this gross miscarriage of justice,” the statement read. “Over an exhausting three and a half year period this trial has done nothing but prove Bruce’s innocence beyond any doubt. Whatever lies behind this ruling it is based on neither facts nor evidence. This is a disservice to Monica’s memory; this is not the justice she and Bruce still deserve and that we continue to demand. At some point, even in Mexico, Bruce’s innocence will lead to his freedom.”

However, the sister of the late Burgos told NBC4 that the conviction came as a relief for her.

[The verdict is] a relief for me and my parents,” Karla Burgos told the publication.

Bruce Beresford-Redman has been in the custody of Mexican authorities since he was extradited in 2012.
