Billy Bob Thornton's Estranged Daughter Indicted

Posted: Updated:
OCOEE, Fla. (AP) - The estranged daughter of actor Billy Bob Thornton has been indicted on several charges in the death of a 1-year-old girl she was baby sitting in central Florida.

Amanda Brumfield, 29, was booked at the Orange County Jail on Wednesday. She faces charges of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter of a child.

Court records show she told investigators the infant who died in her care in October acted normally and ate bananas after she fell from a playpen and hit her head. But detectives believe Brumfield's story is inconsistent with the girl's injuries.

It was not immediately clear whether Brumfield had an attorney. A telephone message left at the jail was not returned Thursday morning.

Thornton's publicist has said the actor hasn't spoken to Brumfield for a number of years.
