BRENTWOOD, Tenn. -

A Brentwood man charged with murdering his wife at the exclusive Governors Club community is scheduled to make his first court appearance Wednesday morning.

Randolph Maidens is being held at the Williamson County Jail for the shooting death of his wife Dr. Rachael Maidens, who was a popular Brentwood orthodontist

The court appearance for Maidens centers on his $2.5 million bond.

There's no word yet if the suspect has hired counsel, but an attorney from a high profile Nashville law firm has visited briefly with Maidens at the jail.  

Maidens was taken into custody without incident early Monday when he was wandering on the grounds of the Governors Club after police had search the community for much of the night.

His wife's body was found at the couple's home Sunday night when police said they were called by someone to see if they could check on the residence.

Brentwood police said the couple's two-year-old child was also found in the home, but unharmed.

The child is now with relatives.

Since the murder, there has been much information about Dr. Maidens who maintained a personal Facebook page and one for her business RM Orthodontists, but little word about her husband except for a DUI arrest in February.

Various business Web sites have listed Randolph Maidens as a "business consultant, or business specialist" who lived in Atlanta before moving to Nashville in 2009 after marrying the young orthodontist.  

One acquaintance told Nashville's News 2 that the suspect "was a bit of an adventurer", saying that Maidens told him he had lived or traveled in Europe and Africa.

More revealing may be a picture that one neighbor paints of Maidens in the past few weeks.

Cynthia Rosenblum told Nashville's News 2 that she recently saw Maidens running in the woods near her home with a ski mask on, a quiver on his back and his dogs beside him.

"And I said what are you doing, and he made some sort of statement that made no sense," Rosenblum said.

Brentwood police in the meantime, have made more trips to the Maiden home looking for clues.

Investigators have the same question so many have, "Why?"
