FARMINGTON HILLS — A pretrial for the man accused of killing a local woman was slated for early June, but it has since been delayed.

Floyd Russell Galloway Jr. was charged earlier this year with the murder of Farmington Hills woman Danielle Stislicki.

According to documents from the 47th District Court in Farmington Hills, a pretrial was scheduled for 9 a.m. June 3, but it has since been delayed.

Previously, a private motion hearing was held at 9 a.m. April 19 in a court chamber, with only Judge James Brady and the attorneys present.

The goal of the hearing was to reportedly discuss details of the case that the prosecution does not yet want to be publicly released.

Another motion hearing in the case was scheduled for 2:30 p.m. June 19 in front of Brady.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced the charges against Galloway during a March 5 press conference in Lansing. Farmington Hills Police Chief Chuck Nebus joined Nessel in the announcement.

In December, Galloway was sentenced to 16-35 years in prison for the Sept. 4, 2016, attempted rape of a Hines Park jogger in Livonia. Prior to that arrest in June 2017, Galloway was considered a person of interest in the Danielle Stislicki case.

Galloway is a former security guard who worked for a contracted company that previously provided security at MetLife in Southfield. According to police, Galloway was acquainted with Stislicki at work.

Although Stislicki was last seen in Southfield, according to Farmington Hills police, her vehicle was left at her home at the Independence Green Apartments in Farmington Hills, in the area of Halsted Road and Grand River Avenue.

While Stislicki has never been found, Nessel said during the press conference that the evidence against Galloway in the case is “compelling.”

At a March pre-exam conference, Brady ordered that Galloway stay in the Oakland County Jail until the case is completed.

Galloway is charged with one count of first-degree premeditated murder, a felony that could carry a life sentence without parole, according to Brady.

William Mitchell, an attorney for Galloway, did not return a request for comment by press time.
