The rapper boyfriend of Morgan Freeman’s step-granddaughter has been arrested after she was stabbed to death on a Manhattan sidewalk in an apparent cocaine-fuelled exorcism, Daily Mail reported.
Lamar Davenport, 30, allegedly killed E’Dena Hines, 33, near her home in Washington Heights on Sunday morning.
A witness, George Hudacko, 65, who saw the 3am attack from his window and called 911 said Davenport was stabbing her and screaming: ‘Get out, devils. In the name of Jesus Christ, I cast you out’.
Davenport, an aspiring actor with a history of drug abuse and a criminal record, was dragged from her body and arrested.
He has been taken to the New York’s Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center to undergo psychological testing before being questioned by police.
Miss Hines, who is the granddaughter of Morgan Freeman’s first wife Jeanette Adair Bradshaw, was a regular on the red carpet with her grandfather and also appeared in a number of movies herself.
The heartbroken star, 78, said last night: ‘The world will never know her artistry in talent. Her star will continue to shine bright in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. May she rest in peace.’
He added: ‘I want to acknowledge the tremendous outpouring of love and support my family has received regarding the tragic and senseless passing of my granddaughter E’Dena Hines. Thank you from the bottom of my heart’.
