Danielle Redlick, 45, is accused of second-degree murder and tampering with physical evidence.
Winter Park police found her husband, Michael Redlick, 65, dead in the couple’s home on the 1200 block of Temple Drive on Jan. 12. They have released few details about the case but called his death “suspicious.”
Michael Redlick joined UCF in 2013, according to the university. He was the director of external affairs and partnership relations for the DeVos Sport Business Management Program.
Before coming to UCF he worked in marketing for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Cleveland Browns and Memphis Grizzlies, according to his university biography.
A Winter Park police officer arrested Danielle Redlick at her Temple Drive home about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to her arrest affidavit. She quickly asked for a lawyer, Officer Justina Lopez wrote.
“I did not ask Redlick any questions and Redlick made no statements in my presence,” Lopez wrote.
Court records show Danielle Redlick filed for divorce from Michael Redlick in March 2018, describing their then-13-year marriage as “irretrievably broken.” A judge dismissed the petition in November, indicating that Michael Redlick had not been properly served with divorce papers.
In her divorce petition, Danielle Redlick sought to share custody of the couple’s two children – now 15 and 11 — as well as alimony and the “exclusive use” of the couple’s home on Temple Drive. Court paperwork described Danielle Redlick as an unemployed communications professional and photographer.
She also sought the restoration of her name prior to marriage: Danielle Drohan.
