During an emotional day of testimony, a court was shown Morgan Freeman's granddaughter's boyfriend high on PCP just hours before he stabbed her to death in 2015.
The courtroom was shown the disturbing footage of Lamar Davenport, now 30, high on PCP at a table with friends, while Freeman's granddaughter E'Dena Hines, 33, appears to be filming the disarray in her home, while unknowingly documenting her final hours.
An angry Davenport tells Hines to turn the light off, as she appears to be filming. He tells her 'turn the light off' several times, and then angrily says to her 'Am I to walk toward it and die!?' This is killing me stop it! He then adds 'E'Dena turn off that f***ing light!'
The video offers insight into the last hours of Hines' life, as she dealt with her volatile and drugged up boyfriend. Davenport has said he was given a 'bad batch' of PCP, which led him to stabbing her in a violent, drug induced haze.
According to the New York Post the video shows Davenport high on PCP with pal Raymond Rosario.
PCP, which is an abbreviation for the powerful, dissociative sedative drug phencyclidine, produces visual and auditory distortions, as well as perceptual changes.
PCP's dissociative effects can result in an individual feeling detached from themselves or the world around them.
While under the influence of PCP, someone might feel temporarily divorced from reality, or that their body is not their own.
Davenport's attorneys argue he is not guilty by reason of insanity because he was in the throes of a PCP-induced psychosis at the time of the attack.
Also on Wednesday, the grieving mother of Hines testified through tears as she told a court of their final hours together before she was stabbed to death by her boyfriend.
Deena Adair, 55, during her testimony in Manhattan Supreme Court, said she had spent the entire day with Hines, before Davenport stabbed her 25 times to death at 2.50am on August 16, 2015.
'We drove to Jamaica, Queens to go look at the house that was my grandparents' house,' said Adair, who was adopted by Freeman when he married Adair's mother, Jeannette Adair Bradshaw.
The assistant district attorney pressed: 'Why did you go see that house that day?,' according to the New York Daily News.
'Just to reminisce — just to go and walk around and just talk about our experiences,' she replied.
Adair explained that she had given birth to Hines when she was 19-years-old and did not raise her herself, and that they had reconnected when her daughter was an adult.
Hines was raised by Freeman's second wife, Myrna Colley-Lee.
Adair said she and Hines had plans to meet up the following day and that the plans were made over drinks with Hines' friends from grad school, Davenport and his friend.
'(Hines) said to me they would probably stay out a little longer, but not to worry she would call me for lunch or dinner the next day,' Adair recalled of their goodbye.
'I just jumped in a taxi and said I'm tired,' she said, through tears.
Adair, struggling to continue whispered, 'Why? Why? Why?'
Hours later, Hines was stabbed 25 times in the chest, back and arm on W. 162nd St. in front of the brownstone where she and Davenport had been living for about 10 months.
On Tuesday, a witness told how she saw him straddling Hines on the street and stopped her from getting to her feet.
'They were arguing. She was on the floor, and he was on top of her, restraining her, stopping her from getting loose from his grip.
'He was trying to keep her down… I proceeded to call the cops,' nursing student Cristina Aviles said, according to The New York Post which attended Tuesday's hearing.
'He was yelling things about releasing the devil out of her. And then he pulled out a knife, and then he proceeded to stab her multiple times,' she added.
Aviles said she watched 'in shock' as Davenport pulled out a knife.
'I don't know where it came from,' she said.
She described in harrowing detail how Hines tried to escape and 'flipped' from her back to her stomach as she was repeatedly wounded.
'There was multiple stabs. The back, and then on the front of her chest and her neck.
'She was on her stomach, and then she somehow flipped over, and he stabbed her on the chest.
'She was trying to get away from him by pushing him and kicking him,' she said.
She said Hines continued to move but not intentionally and that it looked like her body was 'jerking' in shock.
Davenport stopped plunging the knife into her, she said, once Hines was
