Police say the suspect, identified as Dante's mother's ex-boyfriend Deandre Chaney Jr., then turned a hammer and knife on the mother and daughter.
Six days later, Daniels died. She said Brown will probably never see out of her left eye and Danae "will need a lot of help".
Chaney Jr.is facing murder and attempted murder charges.
Dante never made it to his second day of third grade at Oakridge Elementary in South Sacramento, the report said. Salone told detectives that she was "struck at least three times" with a hammer from behind as she went to check on her child.
