Billy Bob Thornton's Daughter Guilty of Manslaughter in Baby's Death

The estranged daughter of Billy Bob Thornton was convicted of aggravated manslaughter in the death of a friend's baby daughter, but was not found guilty of first degree murder.  The verdict was announced, last Friday with Amanda Brumfield, 32, in the same Orlando, Florida, courthouse where Casey Anthony is being tried for the murder of her daughter, the Orlando Sentinel reports.  Brumfield had claimed that the death of a Madison-year-old Olivia Garcia, while in her care as a babysitter one evening in October 2008, was an accident - and that she simply fell short distance from a box.  Prosecutors said that such a reduction would not be good for three-and-a-half inch skull fracture found on the girl and the bleeding and swelling on her brains. Brumfield will be sentenced in July. She was found not guilty of aggravated child abuse charge third.
