E’Dena Hines, here with her step-grandfather Morgan Freeman at the 2005 Golden Globes, was stabbed to death in Washington Heights Saturday night, according to a report.
The step-granddaughter of actor Morgan Freeman was stabbed to death on a street by her deranged boyfriend as he yelled “Get out devils!” in Washington Heights early Sunday, police sources and a witness said.
Police officers found E’Dena Hines, 33, lying in the middle of W. 162nd near St. Nicholas Ave. with several knife wounds to her chest around 3 a.m., according to authorities.
“Get out devils! I cast you out Devils in the name of Jesus Christ! I cast you out!” the 30-year-old man repeatedly said, according to George Hudacko, 65, who saw the attack and called 911.
“I watched someone get murdered, and there was nothing I could do,” Hudacko added.
Hines appeared to be topless, said another witness, Jovita Bedolla, 26, who saw the murder from her bathroom window.
The man, who is believed to be her current boyfriend, was taken into custody and the knife was recovered at the scene, authorities said.
No reports of the suspect’s race, so I take it he’s not white.
What a horrible tragedy. I’m so sorry for Morgan Freeman – I don’t know if I could get through this ever – I hope he can..
