Billy Bob Thornton’s Daughter Guilty Of Manslaughter

he eldest daughter of Hollywood actor Billy Bob Thornton has been found guilty of aggravated manslaughter after her best friend’s baby died in her care.

Amanda Brumfield, 32, who is Billy Bob’s eldest daughter from his first marriage, had claimed one-year-old Olivia Madison Garcia died at the Orlando home of her friend Heather Murphy in October 2008 after the child hit her head when she tried to climb out of her playpen.

But prosecutors insisted the injuries sustained by the child, including a three-and-a-half inch fracture to the back of the her skull and bleeding and swelling to her brain, were not consistent with an innocent fall from a low height.

Mrs Brumfield was acquitted of first-degree murder and aggravated child-abuse charges. She is expected to face sentencing on the manslaughter charge in July.

Her father, Billy Bob Thornton, has starred in many hit films, including Oscar-winning Monster’s Ball, but is best known for his bizarre short-lived marriage to Angelina Jolie.
