FRANKLIN, Tenn. -

The man charged with killing his orthodontist wife at their Brentwood home was in a Williamson County courtroom Monday morning for a hearing on a wrongful death civil suit brought by the estate of his late wife.

Randolph Maidens is being sued by the estate of his late wife Dr. Racheal Maidens, which is administered by her mother Betty Frisbie.

While the main hearing of the lawsuit was postponed, a contempt citation against Maidens for accessing his home shortly after making bond was dropped.

Maidens also agreed to abide by most conditions of the proposed temporary restraining order until a July 22 hearing, except that he can access the couple's joint accounts to see balances and history.

When asked by Judge Robbie Beal if he understood the conditions, 42-year-old Maidens replied, "Yes, sir."

For most of the five hour wait for the hearing, Maidens sat with attorneys and his sister in a courtroom just 20 feet from Rachael Maidens' mother Betty and family friends.

He is scheduled to be back in Williamson County court on Tuesday to face arraignment on the charges of murdering his wife.

District Attorney Kim Helper is also challenging the lowering of Maiden's bond to $750,000.
