Granddaughter Of Actor Morgan Freeman Stabbed To Death



Controversial Allegations Emerge in Emotional Sentencing of Morgan Freeman’s Granddaughter’s Killer

In a highly charged courtroom during the sentencing of the murderer of Morgan Freeman’s granddaughter, the family of the convicted man laid blame on Freeman himself, accusing the acclaimed “Shawshank Redemption” actor of sexual abuse of the victim in her early years.

Unfolding Drama in Court

Lamar Davenport’s mother vociferously claimed Freeman’s alleged misconduct was responsible for the tragedy as she was led out of the courtroom following an outburst during her son’s sentencing.

“Morgan Freeman molested her and he caused this. He did this,” she exclaimed, insisting on her son’s innocence and suggesting the fatal incident was an accident.

These allegations of an illicit relationship between Freeman and his step-granddaughter, E’Dena Hines, originally surfaced during Davenport’s murder trial in Manhattan Supreme Court. However, Freeman has consistently denied the accusations.

Details of the Crime

Davenport was found guilty of stabbing his girlfriend, Hines, over 25 times on August 16, 2015, on West 162nd Street in a frenzied attack under the influence of the hallucinogenic drug PCP. The horrific crime unfolded in front of horrified residents and passers-by.

In what the defense might consider a partial victory, Davenport was convicted of the less serious charge of manslaughter, having chosen to waive a jury trial and leaving the decision entirely to Justice Ellen Biben, who subsequently imposed a 20-year sentence.

Emotional Impact Statements

During the proceedings, Hines’s niece, Ayanna Freeman, and biological mother, Deena Adair, delivered deeply moving victim impact statements.

Ayanna Freeman, struggling to maintain composure, shared her heartbreak over the loss of her soulmate, stating, “My soulmate was taken from me, and ever since then I continue to feel the emptiness.”

She emotionally recounted shared experiences with Hines, expressing regret for future milestones they would never get to experience together. “This experience has forever changed me as a person,” she concluded.

A Lost Connection

Deena Adair, the daughter of Freeman’s first wife, Jeanette Adair Bradshaw, and another man, is the biological mother of Hines. Hines was adopted and brought up by Freeman and his second wife, Myrna Colley-Lee.

Adair and Hines were just beginning to re-establish their mother-daughter relationship, spending quality time together on the very day of Hines’s murder.

“How could I know it would be the last time I would see her or hear her voice?” Adair asked, tearfully articulating the painful void left in their family by Hines’s untimely death. Adair mourned the loss of future family moments with her daughter, expressing, “There will forever be an empty seat at our family gatherings.”

The deeply emotional case and its aftermath, marked by controversial allegations and a family’s profound loss, continues to reverberate through Hollywood and beyond.
