Alleged Governors Club killer Randolph Maidens posts bond, will be released

Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at 5:52pm

Randolph Maidens, who allegedly killed his wife at their home in the upscale Governors Club development in Brentwood, posted bond on Tuesday.

"My client has posted bond, but he is still in custody," attorney David Raybin told The City Paper. "He will be released by early evening. He will comply with all of the conditions of release imposed by the judge." One of those conditions is that Maidens wear a monitoring device, which delayed his release until he could be fitted, according to Williamson County District Attorney Kim Helper.

At a May 23 hearing in Brentwood, Randolph Maidens' bond was lowered from $2.5 million to $750,000 in the alleged slaying of his wife Dr. Rachael Maidens.

During the preliminary and bond reduction hearing, Judge Al Nations listened to more than an hour of testimony from witnesses, including two Brentwood police officers, who told the court what they saw at the crime scene and how they found the couple's 2-year-old daughter alone in the home.

Randolph Maidens allegedly shot and killed his wife, a Brentwood orthodontist, at their home in the exclusive Governors Club subdivision in Brentwood sometime on or before Sunday, April 21.

He is due to be arraigned later this month.

The judge has taken a calculated risk with this worthless crap.

The judge has made an error. Why would anyone want an admitted killer back in their neighborhood? And one who left a 2 year old unattended? Good grief. I hope he does not get custody of her. Bunk him with Perry March, please.

With the $87,000. in cash found in his car, I suppose the Bondsmen and Judge
Nations knew the 10% fee on $750,000. was available for the taking. Just saying___
