As we reported earlier this morning, E’Dena Hines, 33, was found fatally stabbed early Sunday. Hines, an actress, writer and acting instructor, suffered multiple stab wounds to her torso, Reuters reports. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital after being found in a street near her apartment in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood.
“Lamar Davenport, 30, was taken into custody and transferred to a hospital for mental evaluation, police said,” the Reuters story reports. “Davenport had been seen by witnesses attacking Hines, yelling ‘Get out, devils. I cast you out, devils,’ according to reports in the Daily News and New York Post.”
Davenport was charged today with second-degree murder, according to police. He was under evaluation in a hospital.
