LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The man who was considered a person of interest in the disappearance of a Michigan woman is now facing a murder charge in connection to the case.
Michigan's attorney general says evidence is "compelling" against a man charged with murder in the 27-month disappearance of a suburban Detroit woman.
“Mr. and Mrs. Stislicki, we are committed to prosecuting your daughter’s killer,” said Nessel. “We vow to do everything within our power to ensure justice is served.”
State Attorney General Dana Nessel announced charges against Floyd Galloway Junior on Tuesday in the disappearance of Danielle Stislicki a day after her office filed a murder charge against Floyd Galloway Jr.
He's accused of killing Danielle Stislicki of Farmington Hills, who was last seen in December 2016. Her body hasn't been found.
“This young woman had everything to live for,” said Nessel. “Her disappearance more than two years ago has left a hole in her family and they deserve justice. The Farmington Hills Police Department has gone to extraordinary lengths to uncover every piece of evidence available. That evidence is compelling.”
Police say Galloway was a security guard where she worked.
He's currently serving a 16 to 35-year prison sentence for strangling and sexually assaulting a jogger in Livonia -- just months before Stislicki disappeared.
Charges were filed against Galloway yesterday and he will be arraigned at 11:30 AM Wednesday March 6th in 47th District Court in Farmington Hills.
He'll likely appear in court by video Wednesday.
“We are very grateful that the Attorney General's office is taking charge of Danielle’s case,” said the Stislicki family. “Moving forward with the evidence that has been gathered, we feel our daughter Danielle Ann Stislicki will receive the justice she deserves.”
Most felonies in Michigan are filed by county prosecutors. Nessel didn't say why the Oakland County prosecutor's office isn't handling the Stislicki case.
Nessel, who became attorney general on Jan. 1, says she's confident there's enough evidence to move the case forward.
