Winter Park woman found not guilty of husband’s murder released from jail

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — After nearly 1,100 days behind bars, the Winter Park woman who had been accused of murdering her husband walked free Friday night.

A jury found 48-year-old Danielle Redlick not guilty of murdering her husband but said she was guilty of tampering with evidence.


Redlick never denied stabbing her husband to death in their Winter Park home in 2019, but maintained she acted in self-defense.

Redlick testified that she thought her husband died from a heart attack after she stabbed him in the shoulder but she waited 11 hours to call 911.

Redlick was overwhelmed after hearing the verdict. She told the jury “thank you” as they were walking out.

The jury deliberated for about four hours over two days.

Redlick walked out of jail on Friday evening after she posted a $15,000 bond.
