Arrest Made in the Murder of Morgan Freeman's Step-Granddaughter, E'dena Hines

Lamar Davenport has been charged with murder in the second degree.

Police responded Sunday morning to a 911 call of a woman, later determined to be Hines, who had been stabbed multiple times in upper Manhattan, according to the NYPD representative. The 33-year-old was rushed to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police said.

Hines, an aspiring actress, was the granddaughter of Freeman's first wife. The Oscar winner released a statement to the AP about his family's loss.

"The world will never know her artistry and talent, and how much she had to offer," Freeman said.
