Just when you think this story couldn’t get any more bizarre…
Morgan Freeman was blamed for the murder of his granddaughter, E’Dena Hines, at her killer’s sentencing hearing on Thursday.
E’Dena’s boyfriend, Lamar Davenport, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for stabbing her to death on a Manhattan sidewalk on Aug. 16, 2015.
Davenport was reportedly high on PCP when he attacked E’Dena and stabbed her more than 25 times in front of their neighbors and pedestrians.
During his trial, his defense team accused Morgan Freeman of carrying on an affair with his step-granddaughter. (This is an unconfirmed rumor that has been circulating for years.)
Davenport waived a jury trial and when Justice Ellen Biben handed down a 20-year sentence, Lamar’s mother began yelling, “Morgan Freeman molested her and he caused this. He did this!”
His mother continued to insist, “He’s innocent! It was an accident,” as she was ushered out of the courtroom.
How do you accidentally stab someone 25 times?!
Aside from rumors and allegations – the fact remains it Lamar Davenport who brutally stabbed E’Dena Hines to death in cold blood.
Morgan Freeman had nothing to do with her murder.
As for anything else between the actor and his granddaughter – God knows and sees all.
