Morgan Freeman’s step-granddaughter was allegedly murdered by her boyfriend early Sunday morning in what some media folks are a calling “an exorcism.”

According to The New York Post, Edena Hines, 33, was stabbed 16 times near her New York apartment building by Lamar Davenport, 30. Witness George Hudacko, who watched the stabbing unfold from his apartment window, said that Davenport screamed “Get out, devils! I cast you out, devils! In the name of Jesus Christ, I cast you out!” as he stabbed Hines.

“The girl was making a lot of noise, screaming,” Hudacko told the Post, adding, “I called 911 — I was begging them to come.”

Ray Rosario, a musician and a friend of Hines, told The Daily Beast he had dinner with the couple and others on Saturday night before the murder.

“I’ve never seen Edena as happy as she was last night,” Rosario said. “I’m still trying to come to grips with what happened … I’m caught between the hate I have for [Davenport], my love for him being my brother, and my heart breaking for her.”

Freeman issued the following statement Sunday:

“The world will never know her artistry and talent, and how much she had to offer. Her friends and family were fortunate enough to have known what she meant as a person. Her star will continue to shine bright in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. May she rest in peace.”

The victim’s grandmother was Freeman’s first wife.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
