Rachael Maidens was found dead inside her Governor's Club home in April.
FRANKLIN, Tenn. -
As Randy Maidens remains free on bond waiting to be arraigned on murder charges June 25, he's also facing a Monday hearing on a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the estate of his deceased orthodontist wife Rachael Maidens.
The estate administered by Rachael's mother Elizabeth "Betty" Frisbie filed the action earlier this month in Williamson County Circuit Court.
The lawsuit calls for a restraining order to keep Maidens from "using" "any joint assets" or any of the "approximately $87,200 cash" found by police in Maiden's car, "or money found" in the couple's Governors Club home in Brentwood shortly after the young mother's body was discovered there April 21.
The wrongful death action also details a phone call from Rachael's brother Brent to Randy Maidens made the day the body was found.
The suit says Maidens told him "he did not know where Rachael was" and stated, 'Brent, you have been a nice guy, a nice brother-in-law, but this will probably be the last time that we ever have a conversation.'"
The wrongful death action goes on to say "the defendant intentionally shot Rachael multiple times causing her death and severely damaging the value of the residence" and that the "defendant intends quickly to sell the residence and use the equity realized from said sale for his sole benefit."
The suit then asks for the Governors Club home to be "marketed for sale, and sold" with proceeds held by the court pending further orders.
Attorneys for both sides in the wrongful death action declined comment.
