Amanda Brumfield, Billy Bob Thornton’s Daughter, Guilty of Manslaughter

Billy Bob Thornton's estranged daughter, Amanda Brumfield, was found guilty of aggravated manslaughter in the death of a friend's baby daughter she was watching in October 2008. An Orlando, Fla., court found the now 32-year-old not guilty of both first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse. Brumfield claimed 1-year-old Olivia Madison Garcia died when she fell out of her playpen. According to prosecutors, such a fall would not have resulted in the three-and-a-half-inch fracture found on the girl's skull that caused bleeding and swelling on her brain. Brumfield is scheduled to be sentenced in July.
