Morgan Freeman’s step-granddaughter E’Dena Hines was yelled and cursed at by her angry boyfriend, Lamar Davenport, just hours before he allegedly stabbed her to death in 2015, video footage obtained by RadarOnline.com shows.
The video, shown above, appears to be taken in a kitchen where Hines, Davenport and a male friend are sitting around a table full of Corona beer bottles and cigarettes.
Davenport – who is currently trial for second-degree murder for Hines’ brutal stabbing – slurs his words and gets increasingly angry at the then-33-year-old for videotaping him.
“Get that out of my face. Just put it off,” Davenport mumbles in front of Hines’ camera. “I don’t like it. Turn the light off!”
Hines’ face is not shown in the video, but Davenport calls Freeman’s step-granddaughter by her first name as he becomes angry.
“I don’t care what you’re doing but take that light away from me!” Davenport shouts. “I don’t want that light there!”
Davenport’s unsteady behavior then turns bizarre when he questions, “Am I to walk toward it and die?!”
“This is killing me, stop it!” he adds. “E’Dena turn off that f**king light!”
As Radar readers know, Hines was fatally stabbed at least 15 times in Upper Manhattan in August 2015. RadarOnline.com obtained disturbing surveillance video of the slaying, where it appears Davenport allegedly sat atop a desperate Hines, stabbing her.
Davenport was arrested and charged with second-degree murder for her death. His attorneys are using the insanity defense, claiming he was driven to kill Hines due to a PCP-induced psychosis.
Hines was the granddaughter of Morgan’s first wife, Jeannette Adair Bradshaw. In 2009, the National Enquirer reported claims that the Driving Miss Daisy icon was caught in a secret love affair with Hines, beginning when she was just a teen. Both denied the alleged decades-long affair.
Earlier this week, eyewitness Xavier Gardere testified in Manhattan court that Davenport “mounted” Hines as she “struggled.”
If convicted, Davenport faces a maximum of 25 years to life in prison.
