Mexico says US TV producer's extradition pending

Mexico says it has been notified of a U.S. court ruling to extradite an American reality show producer charged with murdering his wife during a 2010 Mexican vacation, but says the date for the hand-over is still pending.

Mexico's Attorney General's Office said Friday an agreement has been reached on the extradition of Bruce Beresford-Redman, but "the date for his delivery is still pending."

Earlier this week, the producer's lawyer said he was dropping his fight against the extradition, after a Los Angeles federal court ruling upheld it.

The lawyer said the one-time "Survivor" producer could be sent to Mexico within 60 days following review of the extradition request by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
