Billy Bob Thornton’s daughter Amanda Brumfield guilty of manslaughter

The estranged daughter of actor Billy Bob Thornton has been found guilty of aggravated manslaughter of a child in Orlando.

Prosecutors say 32-year-old Amanda Brumfield was convicted Friday. She is expected to be sentenced in July.

She was acquitted of first-degree murder and aggravated child-abuse charges.

Authorities say Brumfield killed her best friend’s daughter during an overnight stay in October 2008.

Brumfield says 1-year-old Olivia Madison Garcia was trying to climb out of a playpen and hit her head. The defense suggested the fall may have aggravated a previous injury, causing her death.

Prosecutors say it’s impossible that a fall from that height caused a three-and-a-half inch fracture on the back of the girl’s skull and the bleeding and swelling found in her brain.
