Billy Bob Thornton's Daughter Found Guilty Of Manslaughter In 1-Year-Old Girl's Death

billy bob thorntons daughter found guilty of manslaughter

It was two years ago yesterday that we first learned about the tragic death of a 1-year-old girl who was under the care of Billy Bob Thornton's estranged daughter Amanda Brumfield.

Now, we've learned that Brumfield has been found guilty of aggravated manslaughter in the 1-year-old's death.

As a recap, Billy Bob's daughter was babysitting the 1-year-old at the time, and claimed that the child "was trying to climb out of a playpen and hit her head," but the defense argued that the fall might have aggravated "a previous injury," which could have caused the infant's death.

Brumfield's sentencing is expected to take place this July.

Such a sad, awful situation. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the parents of that poor child.

    "Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out…." - That line is thrown around by you idiots so much. You don't think nor pray about anyone or anything beyond when the marketing checks are coming in. So give it a rest and stop acting like you actually think about these people. You "think" about them for as long as you're writing the article, and then you talk about what you're about to stuff in your face for lunch. Douchebags.

    That poor helpless child… see thats what happens when people are not emotionally and mentally evolved enough to be mothers to children. She shouldn't be sterilized while IN jail.. heartless bitch.

    This case is a mess. It's hard to say from the news coverage what happened. She could have been innocent but it sounds like once there was blood involved (on tongue after the fall), the mother definately should have been called and it then could have been the mother's call on whether to get the kid to the hospital or the doctor, or at least come home and investigate what happened. I just googled "baby fell out of crib and hit head what do I do" and learned things to look out for and do. Sad for this gal and tragic for the family of the child that died.
