Holschier was jailed in 1991 for murdering his partner and grievously harming their 13-month-old child in the attack at Chatswood, and releasedin 2014.

Butthree months later the Supreme Court made a three-year high-risk violent offender extended supervision order that restricted Holschier’s freedom.

Holschier was put back behind bars on November 24 last year after being charged with three counts of failing to comply with the order.

Two of the allegations were dropped in Wagga Local Court on Friday after 49-year-old Holschier pleaded guilty to one of the offences –allowing the battery of his electronic monitoring bracelet to go flat.

According to agreed facts tendered to the court, Holschier became upset when a Community Corrections officer visited his central Wagga home on November 23 and said he was not going to charge the anklet.

Holschier made good on his threat, leading to police arresting him the next day after the battery went flat.

He has been in custody since.

Representing Holschier in court, Tumut solicitor Rod Kennedy said his client would be relocated after release from custody, and would abide by the supervision order.

“He needs to be monitored, he knows that,” Mr Kennedy said. “He tells me that is what he is going to do.”

Crown solicitor, Brett Thomson, in his submission to magistrate Erin Kennedy said Holschier’s rehabilitation would come only with his co-operation.

Ms Kennedy sentenced Holschier to a five-month fixedjail termbackdated to his arrest.

Ms Kennedy told Holschier the community wanted him to livepeacefully in the community.

“No-one wants you to re-offend,” Ms Kennedy said.

“I don’t want to re-offend either, your honour,” Holschier replied.
