Monica Burgos -- Dogfight Over Money in 'Survivor' Murder Case

The sisters of Monica Burgos Beresford-Redman want a judge to keep her husband away from Monica's assets -- because they are afraid Bruce Beresford-Redman will raid the account to pay lawyers who will defend him on murder charges.

The sisters are also worried Bruce will fleece Monica's estate to post a hefty bail. In legal docs filed today, Monica's sisters claim Bruce is already under severe financial stress.

The move comes just days after Beresford-Redman was arrested in connection with Monica's murder.
