You have a leak issue that was causing the old metal corner bead to rust. The first course of action for any home repair involving moisture or leaking is to stop the leaking, or you will be repairing it again, and also a larger area of damage with it. (You may have taken care of that already....)

I would honestly suggest to rip it all out to the studs, rather than close up any possible moisture. A moisture meter can be of help to determine if there is any residual moisture in the sheetrock and behind it.

If the area is bone dry, you could sand the rust off the bead, and spray/brush a primer over it. Doing so would allow any new joint compound to stick back onto the corner bead. (With rust on it's surface the compound will not stick well). Then add more coats, as needed, and sand smooth.

I am basing this all on - only what I can see from the pics posted.

Another option is to install more matching tile over that area as well, to protect it from future damage.
