Per reports, the 8-year-old boy lost his life while attempting to protect his younger sister from molestation. Police officials said that the 23-year-old man reportedly used a hammer, knife, and lighter fluid in this incident. Dante was declared brain dead following the attack and died six days later. “Trying to save his sister from this child mo-ester, and that’s why he was beat the worst,” said Dante’s grandmother, Monique.
The boy, Dante, was reportedly attacked with a hammer by his mother’s ex-boyfriend, Deandre. The 23-year-old man was caught by Dante committing a l-wd act on Danae, Dante’s younger sister. Deandre reportedly attacked Danae and 28-year-old Elizabeth, the mother of the two children. Danae and Elizabeth both survived, but Brown has said that Elizabeth will be blind in one eye and Danae will need medical help.
Monique declared Dante a hero, noting that he gave his heart to a 4-year-old In Southern California, so a 4-year-old lives because of him. The man accused was also charged with lewd acts with a child under 14. He was arraigned on murder and attempted murder charges, as well as the new charge. Police arrested him after he stole Elizabeth’s car and fled the home where he attacked her and her 7-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son.
During the incident, at some point, investigators say the suspect turned the hammer and knife on the mother and the 7-year-old girl. The mother reportedly sustained an eye injury during the altercation and will probably never see out of her left eye. Police officials also said that the 7-year-old girl will need a lot of help.
