Remembering 8 year old South Sacramento California boy Dante Daniels

Dante Daniels

An 8-year-old boy from Sacramento, California was beaten to death on September 1 while attempting to protect his younger sister from molestation.

A criminal complaint states that 23-year-old Deandre Chaney Jr. was performing a criminal lewd act on Dante's 7-year-old sister when the little boy stepped in to help, Fox 40 reports.

After the attack, Dante was declared brain dead, and died six days later. Brown wants the community to see how Chaney left her daughter, 28-year-old Elizabeth Salone, and daughter, 7-year-old Danae, for dead.

The criminal objection expresses that Chaney utilized lighter liquid amid the assault, and at point turned the mallet and a blade on Dante's sister.

"Trying to save his sister from this child molester", Monique Brown, the boy's grandmother said.

"Dante gave his heart to a 4-year-old in Southern California, so a four year old lives because of this", she said. She said the boy was beaten with a hammer "down to his spine".

That means there is still a chance Prime Minister Bill English's main challenger, Labour's Jacinda Ardern, could get the top job. No party has claimed a majority government in New Zealand's 120-seat parliament since proportional voting was adopted in 1996.

In addition to being charged with murder and attempted murder, Chaney Jr. also faces a charge for lewd acts with a child. Dante is pictured with his sister, Danae, who at the time was being sexually abused by Chaney Jr. "So a 4-year-old lives on". His sister and mother survived despite some severe injuries. Dante had just started third grade and at Oak Ridge Elementary in South Sacramento, but didn't make it to his second day, his grandmother said.

Brown hailed her grandson as a hero, even in his death.

According to an arrest warrant, the children were home alone with Chaney when the attack happened.

A 8-year-old kid in California was executed attempting to shield his more youthful sister from their mom's ex. In October 2016, he pleaded no contest to a charge of failing to register as a sex offender.

There is a campaign on crowdfunding site Gofundme to raise funds for the family.
