Morgan Freeman’s step-granddaughter was stabbed to death by her crazed boyfriend as he appeared to be trying to perform an “exorcism” on her on a Manhattan sidewalk early Sunday, law-enforcement sources and a witness said.
“’Get out, devils! I cast you out, devils! In the name of Jesus Christ, I cast you out!’ ” the suspect screamed, according to George Hudacko, 65, who witnessed the attack from his window in Washington Heights and called 911.
“The girl was making a lot of noise, screaming,” Hudacko said of victim E’Dena Hines, 33. “I saw something sparkly going up and down. … I called 911, I was begging them to come.”
Hines — whose grandmother, Jeanette Adair Bradshaw, was Freeman’s first wife – was stabbed in front of West 162 Street near St. Nicholas Avenue just before 3 a.m., cops said.
Her live-in boyfriend continued stabbing her even after her body went lifeless and was still screaming incoherently over her when police arrived at the bloody scene, sources said.
