New York - Police have arrested a 30-year-old man in connection with the fatal stabbing of Morgan Freeman's step-granddaughter on a Manhattan street.

Lamar Davenport, of New York City, was charged with second-degree murder on Monday, a day after 33-year-old E'Dena Hines was found lying on the street with multiple stab wounds to the chest.

Police say that Davenport was in a relationship with Hines. She was found in front of her apartment building on West 162nd Street and was pronounced dead at Harlem Hospital.

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.
