Billy Bob Thornton's estranged daughter Amanda Brumfield was sentenced to 20 years in prison for an aggravated manslaughter conviction in the death of a child that was in her care.

Amanda was looking after her best friend's daughter during an overnight stay back in October 2008. She claims that the child was climbing out of her playpen and fell a short distance, causing her to hit her head.

The defense suggested that the fall may have aggravated a previous injury, arguing that it was impossible that a fall from such a short height would have caused a 3 1/2 inch fracture on the back of the girl's skull. Bleeding and swelling was found in her brain, causing her death.

Terrible.

What a tragic story. We can't even fathom what this family is going through. It's so sad for everyone involved.
