Michael Redlick, 65, was found dead on the morning of Jan. 12, 2019 at a home on Temple Drive in Winter Park. Investigators charged his wife, Danielle Redlick with murder less than a month later. According to an arrest affidavit, Winter Park police believe Danielle fatally stabbed her husband during an argument. They said she tried to clean up and tampered with the evidence. The affidavit said Danielle Redlick waited 11 hours to call 911, and when she did, she claimed her husband had "stabbed himself" and “might have had a heart attack." She went on to say "We had an altercation and he stabbed himself and I ran and hid in the bathroom." Police arrived at the couple’s home and found Michael Redlick just inside the front door with blood on his jeans. There was blood in the foyer and detectives said circular marks in the blood indicate that someone had tried to clean it up. The arrest affidavit notes there was a strong smell of bleach in the home and a mop near the stairs had blood on it. The affidavit said there was a large serrated knife with blood on it on the floor, and three kitchen knives in the sink that also appeared to have blood on them.
