It won't be long until former TV producer Bruce Beresford-Redman is arrested for killing his wife.

According to the suspect's attorney, Jaime Cancino Leon, prosecutors will make their decision early next week - and the most likely charge will be first-degree murder, stemming from the death of Monica Beresford-Redman last month in Cancun.

Cancino told TMZ he's displeased with Mexican officials because it's easier for them to simply charge his client than actually investigate the case.

"Bruce has never had the chance to defend himself," the lawyer said. "They didn't even give him the chance to participate in the investigation."

If a Mexican judge determines there's probable cause to charge Beresford-Redman, he'll likely get extradited to that country. A conviction of of first-degree murder there results in a prison sentence of four to 20 years.

** UPDATE: As of Monday, May 31, 2010, these charges have been filed.
