The man on trial for killing Morgan Freeman’s step-granddaughter was high on PCP and stabbed her because he thought it would release a demon trapped inside her, his lawyer said Wednesday.
“God, Jesus, Satan and a demon were somehow at play,” Lamar Davenport's lawyer, Annie Costanzo, said in New York State Supreme Court. She said Davenport believed "a demon was inhabiting the body" of E’Dena Hines, his girlfriend.
Davenport is accused of stabbing Hines 25 times in August 2015. They were both high at the time on PCP, a powerful hallucinogen known for distorting users’ perceptions of reality.
