It’s safe to say that 8-year-old Californian Dante Daniels has a heart of gold and the courage of a lion. Dante was beaten to death with a hammer while protecting his younger sister from being sexually assaulted by his mother’s ex-boyfriend, according to his grandmother.

Dante was brutally beaten with a hammer on Sept. 1. He died six days later.

According to a criminal complaint, 23-year-old Deandre Chaney Jr. was performing a criminal lewd act on Dante’s 7-year-old sister when the child stepped in to help.
