Justice is served. The man who killed Morgan Freeman‘s step-granddaughter, Lamar Davenport, was sentenced to 20 years in prison and five years post-release supervision on Thursday, January 17, in NYC, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr revealed.
Davenport previously murdered 33-year-old E’Dena Hines in August 2015 by stabbing her to death outside of their NYC apartment while under the influence of drugs and alcohol, specifically PCP.
In May 2018, Davenport was convicted of manslaughter. “Ambitious and driven, E’Dena Hines was deeply loved by family and friends before her life was brought to a horrific and tragic end by her boyfriend, Lamar Davenport,” Vance said at the time. “I would like to thank the prosecutors in my office for securing a prison sentence commensurate with his extraordinarily violent crime, and offer my sympathies to Ms. Hines’ loved ones as they continue to mourn.”
Freeman previously adopted his step-granddaughter when she was a child with his second wife, Myrna Colley-Lee. E’Dena was the daughter of Deena Bradshaw, who was the biological daughter of Freeman’s first wife, Jeanette Adair Bradshaw, and another man.
The ENQUIRER exclusively broke the news of Freeman’s scandalous love affair with Hine back in 2009. “Myrna said E’Dena told her that when she was a teenager, she and Morgan went to dinner at a friend’s house one evening. Both had been drinking, and when they returned home, Morgan attempted to have sex with her,” an insider claimed.
Their inappropriate behavior allegedly contributed to both the split between him and Myrna, his wife of 25 years, and his breakup with his longtime mistress, Mary Joyce Hays.
Both Freeman and Hines denied the romance.
