NEW YORK — Actor Morgan Freeman is mourning the death of his granddaughter. She was found stabbed to death Sunday on a Manhattan street.

Police responding to a 911 call at about 3 a.m. found 33-year-old Edena Hines lying on the street with multiple stab wounds to the chest. She was pronounced dead at Harlem Hospital.

Lamar Davenport, of New York City, was charged with second-degree murder on Monday.

Police say the Davenport was in a relationship with Hines. She was found in front of her apartment building on West 162nd.

Freeman issued a statement saying that “The world will never know her artistry and talent, and how much she had to offer.” Hines had studied acting and was involved with teaching urban youth. She’s the granddaughter of Freeman’s first wife.
