Amanda Brumfield, the 32 year-old estranged daughter of actor Billy Bob Thornton, was found guilty of aggravated manslaughter of a child in an Orlando, Florida courtroom.
Brumfield was acquitted of the more serious charges of first-degree murder and aggravated child-abuse.
Brumfield was caring for a friend’s child on an overnight stay in October of 2008 when the one year-0ld died of trauma to the little girl’s head.
Brumfeld has maintained that little Olivia Madison Garcia accidentally fell from her playpen and hit her head but authorities felt the injuries (a three-and-a-half inch fracture to the back of her skull) did not and could not have come from that kind of low height fall. Her death was ruled a homicide.
Jurors agreed with the prosecution and sentencing is set for July.
Brumfeld is Thornton’s child from his first marriage to Melissa Parish.
