BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – The Brentwood man accused of murdering his orthodontist wife will not be able to move back into the couple's home where she was found deceased.

Earlier this week in civil court, a judge ruled Randolph Maidens could return to his home in the exclusive Governors Club community.

However, the judge in his criminal murder case had already issued an order restricting Maidens from living inside the home. The order will allow him to return home is if he is monitored by GPS, notifies the police of his comings and goings, and if he's accompanied by legal counsel at all times while he is at home.

Police said the 42-year-old shot and killed his wife, Rachael, 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.

Testimony in a civil court hearing on Monday revealed detectives found handwritten notes in the home's kitchen and an upstairs bedroom, but copies of those remain sealed.

Investigators said Maidens tried to clean up the crime scene with trash bags, paper towels and cleaning supplies before spending the night in the woods and eventually turning himself in the following day.

While conducting a search warrant, police found $87,200 in cash inside a safe in the trunk of his white Infiniti.

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.
