BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – A Brentwood man accused of murdering his orthodontist wife pleaded not guilty to all counts.

Randolph Maidens briefly appeared in court on Tuesday, and his attorney entered the not guilty pleas for him. Maidens faces criminal homicide, tampering with evidence, and child neglect charges in connection with the murder of his wife, Rachael.

A bond hearing is set for Tuesday afternoon, where prosecutors will try to have his bond increased. 

He posted $750,000 bond in early June after it was reduced from $2 million. The conditions of his bond include that he wear a GPS monitoring device and stay within Davidson and Williamson Counties. He was also barred from contacting his daughter or his wife's family.

Police said the 42-year-old shot and killed his wife inside their home in the Governor's Club on April 21. Her body was found after her mother called police to request a welfare check.

On Monday, Maidens was in a Williamson County court for a wrongful death civil lawsuit filed by Rachael Maiden's family earlier this month. The judge dismissed contempt charges against Maidens, but allowed a temporary restraining order on the use of the couple's assets to stay in place until an injunction hearing on July 22.

The next motion hearing was set for November 12.
