Billy Bob Thornton’s daughter was convicted of aggravated manslaughter

Four months ago, we reported that Billy Bob Thornton’s daughter, Amanda Brumfield, had been convicted of aggravated manslaughter of a child. Now, Brumfield has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

The Associated Press reports that Thornton’s daughter was convicted in the death of a friend’s one-year-old daughter when the child spent the night at her house. Brumfield claimed that the child hit her head after falling while trying to climb out of a playpen. Investigators determined that the three-and-a-half inch fracture in the child’s skull would not have been caused from that short of a fall.

Brumfield is Thornton’s eldest daughter from his first marriage with Melissa Parish. It is believed that Thornton has not been in contact with his daughter in some time.
