SACRAMENTO, CA – An 8-year-old boy was beaten to death with a hammer while trying to stop his mother’s ex-boyfriend from molesting his little sister.

According to a criminal complaint, 23-year-old Deandre Chaney Jr. was molesting a 7-year-old girl in the early morning hours of Sept. 1 when the girl’s brother, Dante Daniels, tried to intervene.

In response, Chaney Jr. responded by attacking the boy with a hammer. He eventually turned the hammer and a knife on the victim and the sibling’s mother – but the little boy got it the worst.

“Trying to save his sister from this child molester, and that’s why he was beat the worst,” said Dante’s grandmother, Monique Brown.

Dante would be taken to the hospital where he would remain brain dead for six days before dying.

His sister and mother would survive the attack, but his mother will probably never see out of her left eye again, according to his grandmother.

Brown said that if there is any silver lining to this tragic incident, it is the fact that Dante’s heart went to a 4-year-old boy.

“Dante gave his heart to a 4-year-old In Southern California, so a 4-year-old lives because of him,” Brown said.

Chaney Jr. was arrested after a manhunt found him a few days later, wrapped in a tarp hiding in a shed. Chaney Jr. is currently facing charges of murder, attempted murder, and lewd acts with a child under 14.

This coward has quite the record, including pleading no contest to a charge of failing to register as a sex offender in 2016, pleading no contest to a charge of felony battery with serious bodily injury in 2014, and pleading no contest to a charge of assault with a deadly weapon in 2011.

A GoFundMe has been started to help the surviving family pay for medical bills and counseling. When I last checked, they had raised $19,000 of its $20,000 goal.
