New details have come forward regarding the stabbing death of E’Dena Hines, the step-granddaughter of Morgan Freeman.

Her boyfriend, Lavar Davenport, has been charged with second-degree murder. According to police, he was brought to the NYPD precinct as an “emotionally disturbed person” and he underwent psychiatric testing before that charge was filed.

“I heard two screeches and I looked out my window,” neighbor George Hudacko told PIX11 News. “I heard him mumbling ‘God’ and ‘Jesus,’ and his hand was moving up and down.”

Hudacko is still having a tough time comprehending what he said he saw about 3 a.m. Sunday as he peered out his third-floor window at 450 West 162nd St.

He now knows it was his neighbor, Hines, being stabbed in the middle of the street, allegedly by her live-in boyfriend who kept saying “get the demons out.”

George and several neighbors called 911.

When police arrived,  Hines, who lived just a few doors away, was lying in the street with multiple stab wounds. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

“I heard it was her boyfriend,” neighbor Adrienne Evans said. “She lived with him.”

Such a tragic story. We’re praying for the Freeman/Hines family.
