All tag results for 'aggravated 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.
Actress Amy Locane of Melrose Place fame, who was arrested this past June after she killed a person during a drunk-driving accident in New Jersey, was yesterday indicted by a grand jury on charges of aggravated manslaughter and assault by auto.
She is now facing 10-30 years in jail for the manslaughter charge, and 5-10 years for the assault by auto charge.
Drinking and driving is not a joke, people.
Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by this horrible tragedy.
