hello, last year i had full control of a domain www.chasinhooley.com
foolishly i released this domain to a colleague using a different interface for him to control and that relationship has now went sour, he has not renewed the domain,

when i go into my homestead domain manager it still shows this domain in my list of domains, but ive tried editing a few settings but so far to no avail, is this anything i can do to regain control of this domain i used to have with homestead?

This can be a difficult situation if this person is not cooperative. If they don't renew the domain, then you can wait for it to expire and be released by the registrar but that can take several months. They usually release the domain for resale about 60-75 days after it expires.

If the owner renews the domain, and you are adamant about getting it back, then you are at the mercy of that person to cooperate or negotiate a domain transfer and get it back into your name again. If the domain has a lot of value to you, I would attempt the latter and hope they cooperate with you.
