US Court Hears The Final Words Of Morgan Freeman's Murdered Granddaughter
A witness has given a chilling testimony in which the last words of Morgan Freeman's murdered granddaughter were read out to the court.
E'Dena Hines was stabbed to death in a street in New York on August 16th 2015 and a witness has described how she was knifed 25 times in the chest, back, and arm.
Her boyfriend, Lamar Davenport, is accused of her murder and the trial began on Monday.
The witness spoke of how Davenport mounted Hines body on the floor and restrained her before producing a knife to repeatedly stab her.
Cristina Aviles, the witness giving evidence, said that Hines gasped "Why are you doing this?" to her boyfriend as he killed her.
Aviles admitted that she and her friends were too scared to get involved, but they did ring the police at the time.
The incident took place at 2:50am on August 16th 2015. Aviles said: "They were arguing. She was on the ground, and he was on top of her, restraining her, stopping her from getting loose from his grip.
"I proceeded to call the cops. He was yelling things about releasing the devil out of her. And then he pulled out a knife.
"There was multiple stabs - the back, and then on the front of her chest and her neck."
Aviles continued: "She was on her stomach, and then she somehow flipped over, and he stabbed her on the chest. She was trying to get away from him by pushing him and kicking him.
"And then he stopped after she was still."
Davenport was allegedly in a drug induced state of psychosis at the time of the attack. Aviles stated in her testimony that she could not intervene to give CPR to Hines because Davenport was still sitting astride her with the knife in his possession.
She said: "I want justice, just like everybody else."
Hines was the daughter of Morgan Freeman's stepdaughter who he adopted during his first marriage.
After that marriage ended, Freeman's second wife then formally adopted Hines and helped to raise her.
At the time of her death, Freeman said: "The world will never know her artistry and talent, and how much she had to offer."
The court also heard a recording of the 911 call that was made by Aviles on the day of the incident.
The caller can be heard screaming: "Oh my God! Oh no! She's on the floor!
"I can't believe I'm watching this! This f**king guy is stabbing her. This guy is crazy!"
Davenport denies the killing and was taken immediately to a psychiatric ward after the police arrived.
