According to Nolanville Interim Police Chief Michael Hatton, Holowatsch, 50, was arrested and charged with first degree murder. 

Nolanville police were dispatched to a civil standby around 11 a.m. A civil standby is when a resident calls police for police supervision in a tense situation. The situation was cleared.
