Man sent to trial on murder charge in woman’s disappearance

September 10, 2019

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (AP) — A security guard has been ordered to trial in the disappearance of a woman who worked at the same Detroit-area building but whose body hasn’t been found.

Floyd Galloway Jr. is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 28-year-old Danielle Stislicki of Farmington Hills. She’s been missing for nearly three years.

A judge heard two days of testimony before ordering Galloway to trial Tuesday. Under Michigan law, the evidence threshold is low at this stage of a felony case. A state police expert said there was a “strong” likelihood that Stislicki’s DNA was on a carpet patch in Galloway’s home.

Ann Stislicki said her daughter knew Galloway but “wasn’t interested in him.”

The 32-year-old Galloway has pleaded not guilty. He’s serving a minimum 16-year prison sentence for kidnapping in a different case.
