The dying words of Morgan Freeman’s step-granddaughter to her killer were, “Why are you doing this?” as he knifed her in the middle of a Manhattan street, a witness revealed Tuesday— adding that she and her friends were too sacred to intervene.
According to the New York Post, E’Dena Hines was just getting reconnected with her estranged biological mother when she was murdered by her crazed boyfriend, the grieving mom testified during the murder trial Wednesday.
“The day before she was killed, I spent time with her,” said Hine’s mother, Deena Adair, as she gasped for breath while sobbing on the stand in Manhattan Supreme court. “We drove to Jamaica, Queens, to look at my grandparents house” and to “reminisce, to talk about her experiences, our different experiences.”
Adair is the daughter of Freeman’s first wife Jeanette Adair Bradshaw and another man, making her Freeman’s step-daughter and Hines the actor’s step-granddaughter.
