Mother of boy killed by father last fall to testify for bill making domestic violence a crime in itself
Nine-year-old Joshua Savyon was shot and killed by his father, Muni Savyon, during a court-ordered supervised visit. Muni had threatened both Joshua and his mother's lives and was under a domestic violence protective order that had been mistakenly allowed to expire.
Tuesday, Joshua's mother, Becky Ranes, will testify in favor SB 318, which would establish the crime of domestic violence.
The bill would not change any state existing laws that usually apply to domestic violence crime, but would group the statutes in one new section.
A public hearing will be held on the bill at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday in Room 100 of the State House before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
