LANSING – A cold Oakland County homicide case picked up by Attorney General Dana Nessel and her team has been bound over for trial on one charge of Murder in the First Degree, Nessel announced today. The case was bound over by 47th District Court Judge James Brady.

Nessel charged Floyd Galloway, Jr. with first degree pre-meditated murder of Danielle Stislicki, 28, of Farmington Hills, who disappeared from the parking lot of her Southfield employer on the evening of December 2, 2016 and has never been found. Nessel met with the Farmington Hills police detectives who investigated the case and ultimately decided to take the case, announcing the charges against Galloway in March. 

“The Farmington Hills Police Department worked with multiple local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and prosecutors to gather evidence and establish a timeline of events,” said Nessel.  “I am grateful for their persistence in pursuing this case.”

Nessel appointed Jaimie Powell Horowitz as a Special Assistant Attorney General specifically to prosecute this case.  Powell Horowitz is a special prosecutor for Wayne County Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy and has routinely been assigned to high profile cases involving homicides and sexual assault.

An arraignment on information is scheduled for 1 p.m. Thursday, September 19.
