Bruce Beresford-Redman Makes Custody Move

5/28/2010 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bruce Beresford-Redman's lawyer, his parents, and the sister of his slain wife Monica, are all in court arguing over who should have custody of Bruce's two kids.

Bruce's parents have asked the judge to remove them as guardians of the kids ... which then clears the way for Bruce to regain custody. But the sisters are objecting because they don't think "someone suspected of killing their mother should be in charge of the kids."

UPDATE: Bruce's mother tells TMZ she wasn't invited to the memorial on Sunday and that she only knows of the memorial "because of the media."

UPDATE: The judge has ordered that the children are to not attend the memorial service for Monica that is being thrown by the sisters on Sunday -- or any other memorial service.

UPDATE:  Now here's a twist.  The lawyer for Bruce's parents is concerned ... if his clients withdraw their guardianship petition Bruce might not get custody.  So the lawyer just said Bruce's parents would not withdraw their guardianship over the kids.  The judge, slyly, said "I don't think they get to hedge their bets."

UPDATE: The judge just said he's willing to remove Bruce's parents as guardian and will hear arguments from the sisters about appointing a new guardian.

UPDATE: The lawyer for Bruce's parents told the judge the guardianship papers were filed because there was "no parent available" to take care of the kids -- Bruce was detained in Mexico. Now Bruce is back.

Is there anyone out there who actually thinks this man is innocent? If nothing else he left Mexico illegally BEFORE the authorities completed their investigation. That alone should give anyone pause before handing two small children over to him.

You guys are covering this more often than Perez covers Travis Garland or Lady Gaga or Gay rights. Take a poll to see who cares about this nobody, I bet the majority will say they don't care. Get back to gossip, that is what this website is about right?

This guy obviously isn't telling everything about the murder. If the judge does give the kids to this fool before any solid investigation, that will be pathetic. The judge could possibly be giving the kids to a sociopath. My prediction is if he does get the kids and gets charged with murder, he will attempt to flee.

I realize he hasn't been convicted of anything but if he's going to be charged with murder next week it's sort of uncomfortable to think of him having custody of the kids. Is he going to be incarcerated or can he post bail?

Let's just hope Mexico charges him and the sister legally gets those kids before he tries to run with them. This is not a man grieving for his murdered wife. Slime.

I do believe he is guilty as sin. He's acting very suspicious. Just the fact that he went into hiding after his wife's body was discovered means something. Then he flees Mexico without his passport? WTF? Now he wants custody of his two young sons? Don't think so. Dude needs to be charged. Hopefully, Mexico will servce the justice that Monica deserves. Also, why can't the children attend the Memorial Service for their mother? Is it because they are too young? Just curious.

Right now it matters not a whit if he's guilty or innocent, those children can't be placed in a situation where there's even the slightest potential of danger.

How can the judge order that the kids NOT be allowed to attend their mother's memorial service? THAT'S HORRIBLE!

The victim's sister is obnoxious?



Her sister was murdered, thrown down a sewer and you think she is being obnoxious? Of course she is pissed! Do you think she should be cordial with the potential killer?

If Bruce's passport is still in Mexico that means he's in the country illegally. How can a judge give him custody?
