A former reality TV show producer is home in Southern California after serving a little more than half of his prison sentence in Mexico for killing his wife while on vacation in 2010.

Bruce Beresford-Redman, whose credits include "Survivor" and "Pimp My Ride," was back in Gardena on Tuesday after his release from prison on June 20, NBC Los Angeles reported.

Beresford-Redman reported his wife Mónica missing in April 2010 while the couple and their two children were celebrating her 42nd birthday with a vacation at the luxury Moon Palace Resort in Cancun. Her body was found in a sewer, and an autopsy found she had been strangled.
