Billy Bob Thornton's daughter Amanda Brumfield found guilty of manslaughter in baby's death
Amanda maintained Olivia's death was accidental. She claimed Olivia died while trying to climb out of her playpen and fell, while the prosecution argued that it was impossible that a fall from that small height could have caused the 3.5-inch fracture on Olivia's skull and the bleeding/swelling that was found in her brain. Brumfield was acquitted of first-degree murder.
Amanda is Billy Bob Thornton's child from the first of his five marriages. Amanda was born in 1979, during Thornton's marriage to Melissa Lee Gatlin.
In a weird coincidence, the Orlando courthouse where Amanda stood trial is also hosting the trial for Casey Anthony, who is being tried with the murder her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.
