Manchester YWCA killing was mom's worst nightmare
Shots had been fired inside, she was told. Frantic, she called David I. Bailinson, the attorney who has represented her for about five years in a tortuous custody battle with Joshua's father, Menahem "Muni" Savyon, 54, of Manchester.
"Do you know what haunts her? Did he (Joshua) see it coming?"
Ranes had a restraining order against Savyon after he threatened her on March 29, 2012, with: "I have a gun. It's going to be either you or me and Joshua," according to court papers.
"If he was going to harm somebody, we thought it would be Becky or himself," Bailinson said. "We all hoped that the threat to his son was to terrorize Becky. How could any human being actually believe that this could happen?" he said.
On July 19, 2012, the criminal threatening case against Savyon, who Bailinson described as an emotionally abusive, controlling man, was placed on file without a finding in 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division.
The restraining order stayed in place in the criminal case until it was vacated last month. However, the restraining order in the custody case, issued out of Merrimack Family Court, was in effect. It required supervised visits with his son.
Savyon was born in Israel but was a U.S. citizen who has lived here for about 20 years, according to Bailinson. Each summer, he returned to Israel for a three-week vacation accompanied by Joshua.
Firearms not surrendered
At one court hearing, when Bailinson asked him why he had hearing protection gun muffs in his home if he didn't have any firearms (Joshua told his mother about the ear protection headphones), Savyon said he wore them when he vacuumed.
Bailinson also said he believes supervised visitation centers should be required to use metal detecting devices in every case where a parent has threatened to kill a child — each and every time the parent arrives for a visit.
