Earlier today, the judge set a trial date for November 8th -- and ruled that the current custody arrangement would remain in place until that date.

After the hearing, Jeane told reporters that she was "disappointed" in the judge's decision.

OMG only in this freakin country would a judge give custody of innocent children to the murder's parents!!!!!!!! My heart really goes out to the victim's family. Can you imagine the bs those kids have to listen to on a daily bases about their deceased mother? TMZ needs to list the judges name and people vote this loser judge right out of office. Those kids don't need to suffer like this. In November when that s*** bag goes to trial then the court will say oh well it is in the children's best interest to stay in the home they are now in as they have made it their home.

Wow Pam, way to jump to conclusions! He is innocent until PROVEN guilty and with Mexico's screwed up legal system I wouldn't trust their judgment in anything.



I think this man deserves a fair trial and I'm sure his kids are safe, and want to be with their father rather than their angry, hateful aunt who is only going to bash him 24/7!

Well, Pam, in this country you are innocent until proven guilty.



Or are you advocating that we disobey our own justice system?



Though he may well be guilty, just cause one side beeps and squawks doesn't mean they get their way.

In this country - you are presumed innocent until teh trail. Those grandparents did not commit the murder. They are entitle more to the kids than a sister or a brother. If the sister gets her hands on them they will take them to Brazil where the Grandparents will never see them again.

Honestly, as guilty as I think the father of those kids are, that doesn't mean his parents had anything to do with it. The mother's sisters seem like insane loose cannons...they were not in Mexico, they are not the justice system. Even if we all think Bruce did it, even if the sisters think Bruce did it...they don't know, and they can't prove it. They need to back off and quit acting like complete psychos on an innocent person, because even if everyone thinks he did it, no one knows the fact and he has not been proven guilty. I honestly don't see how acting like unstable, angry bitter women with no sense of the law system or justice will prove them to be fit adoptive parents.

It sounds a little nutty to me. They place the kids in the custody of the accused man's family? Family court isn't like criminal court when it comes to child custody. You don't have to prove the parent is guilty of some misconduct beyond a reasonable doubt as you would in a criminal trial. You are supposed to look at the best interest of the children. How can what they are doingin this case be the safest thing to do? Not good.

AC #7 and #8 - you have obviously researched. Just the FACT that dad is about to be arrested in Mexico should have been enough information for the judge to give temp custody to the victim's sister. The evidence that the grandparents are going after the victim's home, restaurant, and had involvement in the life insurance should have been enough to place the kids with the vic's sister. ALL YOU IGNORANT PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW THE FACTS SHOULD KEEP YOUR MOUTHS SHUT. IF DAD KILLED MOM (all facts point to yes) THE DAD COULD END UP KILLING THE KIDS AND HIMSELF RATHER THAN BE ARRESTED. Dad is a producer and probably paid off the judge. DAD'S CREEPY PARENTS ARE WAY TOO INVOLVED AND SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED IN OUR JURISDICTION FOR INSURANCE FRAUD, CONSPIRACY ETC. SHUT UP IGNORANT PEOPLE. get off the couch and investigate before you post!!!!!!!!!!!

WHILE YOU ARE RESEARCHING YOU WILL FIND THAT IT IS VERY UNUSUAL FOR THE JUDGE TO GIVE TEMP CUSTODY TO THE ALLEDGED MURDERER'S FAMILY. VERY SUSPICIOUS. THE COURT ORDER WOULD NOT ALLOW THE KIDS TO LEAVE THIS COUNTRY AND IF THE AUNT TRIED TO THE PASSPORTS WOULD POP UP AND WHOEVER WAS TRYING TO TAKE THE KIDS OUT OF THIS COUNTRY WOULD BE ARRESTED. RESEARCH.

WHATEVER    

THE USA CAN BE SO F-ED UP. AND I'M FROM HERE. I'D JUST ABOUT BET YOU THAT THE F-ED UP "JUDGE" IS A MALE, TOO----HIS PEA-BRAIN CAN'T FIGURE THAT YOU NEED TO GET THE CHILD AWAY FROM THE MURDEROUS DADS FAMILY, BECAUSE WHAT SORT OF PEOPLE MIGHT THEY BE ?????? AND WHAT SORT OF TORTURE IS THIS FOR THE FAMILY THAT LOST THE MOTHER OF THE KIDS !!? ONLY A MALE JUDGE COULD BE THAT DUMB.
OR, SOME B*TCH WHO NEVER HAD KIDS OF HER OWN.
