Billy Bob Thornton's estranged daughter Amanda Brumfield, has been convicted of aggravated manslaughter in the death of her friend's 1-year-old daughter but was found not guilty of first-degree murder.
Brumfield, 32, claimed her friend's baby girl, Olivia Madison Garcia, suffered a fall while Brumfield was babysitting in October 2008 -- that the girl had simply fallen out of her playpen. But prosecutors argued such a fall wouldn't have accounted for a three-and-a-half inch skull fracture and bleeding and swelling found on the girl.
Brumfield was found not guilty of a third charge of aggravated child abuse. She will be sentenced in July.
Brumfield's case was heard in the same Orlando, Fla. courthouse where Casey Anthony is being tried for the murder of her daughter.
