Billy Bob Thornton’s Daughter Convicted of Manslaughter

2 Jun

Billy Bob Thornton’s  daughter was found guilty of manslaughter in a Florida courtroom Friday in the death of a one-year-old girl who died in her care. The singer has had an estranged relationship with his daughter, 32-year-old Amanda Brumfield.

Ms. Brumfield was convicted of aggravated manslaughter stemming from the death of her best friend’s daughter … who she was babysitting in October 2008.

She had also been charged with first degree murder and child-abuse but  was acquitted on those charges.

Brumfield — Thornton’s child from his first marriage to Melissa Lee Gatlin — has claimed the little girl hit her head while trying to climb out of a playpen and died from her injuries.

But prosecutors didn’t buy it — saying the child’s fractured skull and brain swelling were too severe to have been caused by a minor fall.

She’s set to be sentenced in July.
