NEW YORK (AP) — A man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for the fatal stabbing of actor Morgan Freeman’s step-granddaughter in New York City.
Prosecutors say 33-year-old Lamar Davenport stabbed his girlfriend E’Dena Hines multiple times while under the influence of alcohol and drugs in August 2015.
Davenport issued an apology during his sentencing hearing Thursday, and said, “I don’t remember what happened.”
Davenport was convicted of first-degree manslaughter in May.
