CANCUN, MEXICO (AP) - A U.S. reality television producer has repeated his claims of innocence during a court hearing on the death of his wife at a Mexican resort in 2010.

Former “Survivor” producer Bruce Beresford-Redman says noises reported by witnesses coming from his room were him playing loud games with his children.

Beresford-Redman made the statement at a hearing Monday, two days before a judge is scheduled to decide whether the evidence warrants holding him over for trial.

The body of Monica Beresford-Redman was found in a sewer cistern at the resort.

The producer’s defense lawyers said the three-hour hearing in the city of Cancun went well.

A lawyer for his wife’s family said Beresford-Redman offered nothing new to support his story.
