FARMINGTON HILLS — A hearing was held behind closed doors for the man accused of killing Danielle Stislicki.

Floyd Russell Galloway Jr. was charged earlier this year with Stislicki’s murder.

According to a representative of the 47th District Court, the 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 reportedly to discuss details of the case that the prosecution does not yet want to be publicly released.

However, a pretrial in the murder of the 28-year-old Farmington Hills resident is scheduled for 9 a.m. June 3.

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.
