She unknowingly recorded her final hours.

Morgan Freeman’s granddaughter was stabbed to death in 2015 by her longtime boyfriend who was high on PCP, and it was revealed in court this week that she recorded her final hours.

E’Dena Hines, 33, was brutally stabbed 25 times in the streets of New York City by her boyfriend, Lamar Davenport. He was high on a “bad batch” of PCP when he killed the aspiring actress in a drug-induced attack.

The video was presumably recorded by Hines in her home and shows Davenport, now 33, yelling at her about a light that was supposedly killing him. She was unaware she was documenting her final hours, which was shown in court Wednesday.

“Am I to walk toward it and die!?” he yelled at Hines. “This is killing me stop it!' E'Dena turn off that [expletive] light!”

According to The New York Post, a woman who witnessed the murder said Hines’ last words were, “Why are you doing this?”

Cristina Aviles, a 22-year-old nursing student, said she saw Hines and her boyfriend arguing outside the home the two shared before Davenport proceeded to stab Hines 25 times in the back, chest, and neck at about 2:15 a.m., Aug. 16, the news outlet reports.

“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,” Aviles said Tuesday.

She and her friends didn’t intervene because they said they were afraid Davenport would attack them, too.


“I proceeded to call the cops,” she continued. “He was yelling things about releasing the devil out of her. And then he pulled out a knife.”

Several other witnesses also stated that they heard Davenport mumbling about ridding Hines of demons, The New York Daily News reports.

Xavier Gardere, who witnessed the slaying, told a 911 dispatcher that Hines’ boyfriend was “f--king crazy” and was “talking Bible f--king passages.”

“I love you. I always loved you!” Gardere said Davenport muttered as he knifed Hines. “God would have wanted this.”

Aviles explained that Davenport brought the knife all the way up to his forehead before bringing it back down and thrusting it into Hines’ body again and again.

“There was multiple stabs — the back, and then on the front of her chest and her neck,” she said. “She was on her stomach, and then she somehow flipped over, and he stabbed her on the chest. She was trying to get away by pushing him and kicking him.

“And then he stopped after she was still.”

Aviles now lives in Miami but flew up North for Davenport’s trial because she “wanted to help [Hines] out.”

“I want justice, just like everybody else,” she said.

Davenport’s attorneys argued that he was on drugs and therefore not guilty by reason of insanity. On Monday, Prosecutor Christopher Prevost argued that Davenport is legally responsible for the murder, The New York Daily News writes.

“Whatever the effects of PCP were on his motivations to attack (Hines), his attack was purposeful, with the conscious objective to cause her death,” Prevost said in his opening statement.

He went on to state that Davenport’s intent to take Hines’ life was “clear from when and how he stopped — with the final thrust of the knife into her heart.”

Davenport could face 25 years to life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder.
