Amanda Brumfield, the estranged daughter of Sling Blade star Billy Bob Thornton, has been found guilty of aggravated manslaughter of a child.

In addition, Brumfield, 32, was found not guilty on first degree murder and aggravated child abuse charges in connection with the 2008 death of her best friend’s daughter, 1-year-old Olivia Madison Garcia.

The Orange County State Attorney’s Office  in Florida  says the verdict was released last Friday.

Brumfield had originally claimed that the girl hit her head after falling while trying to climb out of a playpen.  But prosecutors claimed it was impossible that a fall from that height would cause a three and a half inch fracture on the little girl’s skull.

Coincidentally,  the trial took place in the same courthouse where Casey Anthony is on trial for the death of her two-year-old daughter Caylee.

Five times married Thornton, 55, has four children by three different women, he currently lives with his partner Connie Angland.

The Monster’s Ball star was infamously married to Angelina Jolie for three years.
