The man who murdered Morgan Freeman‘s step-granddaughter in 2015 was sentenced to 20 years yesterday. However, his mother hurled some serious accusations at the Oscar winning actor.
Lamar Davenport’s mother yelled to a reporter, “Morgan Freeman molested her and he caused this. He did this. He’s innocent! It was an accident!”
On August 16, 2015, Lamar Davenport murdered E’Dena Hines while he was allegedly stabbed her 25 times on the street while under the influence of drugs. The Daily Mail reports, “One man who witnessed the attack testified at the trial that during the attack Davenport screamed: ‘I love you. I always loved you. God would have wanted this.’ After he was arrested, Davenport was taken to a hospital where after he was given sedatives he awoke screaming; ‘Why did this happen? No, no! Why God?'”
At the sentencing, Lamar Davenport said, “I don’t remember what happened.”
E’Dena Hines, an up and coming actress, was only 33 years old. At the time of her death, Freeman wrote in a statement, “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.”
Page Six reports, “The allegations of an affair between Freeman and his step-granddaughter E’Dena Hines were made by the defense during Davenport’s murder trial in Manhattan Supreme Court. Freeman has strongly denied the allegations.” Hines was the granddaughter of Morgan’s first wife, Jeanette Adair Bradshaw, who he was married to from 1967 to 1979.
Back in April of 2018, it was reported at the trial that Hines revealed to Davenport Freeman had a sexually inappropriate relationship with her, which was reported by the National Enquirer back in 2009. in 2012, after it was reported the two were going to marry, Freeman said in a statement, “The recent reports of any pending marriage or romantic relationship of me to anyone are defamatory fabrications from the tabloid media designed to sell papers.”
In another statement, Hines wrote, “These stories about me and my grandfather are not only untrue, they are also hurtful to me and my family.”
