He was attacked as he slept at his mum’s house in Winnipeg, Canada on Wednesday.

Jensen – who is not Hunter’s biological dad – attacked the tot after a blazing row with ex-partner Clarice Smith.

Little Hunter died on Saturday after his family made the agonising decision to switch off his life support.

Clarice also suffered “a number of injuries” in the attack.

Officers said Jensen walked to Clarice’s house to attack Hunter sortly after their six-month relationship ended in a furious row.

He was already under a court order to not contact her.

Bianca Smith, one of Hunter’s aunts wrote in a Facebook post: “My life forever changed.

“I don’t think this even hit me yet and I don’t know how I’m gonna handle this when this does.”

Local police chief Rob Carver added: “The family has to live with that every day and will for the rest of their lives.

“People in the community who may not even have known the individual but live there are traumatised when they know someone’s been killed on their block or their street or their community.

“I think it touches everyone who hears about it in different ways.”
