Billy Bob's Daughter Indicted for Murder

6/25/2009 9:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Billy Bob ThorntonThe long estranged daughter of Billy Bob Thornton has been charged with first degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter of a one-year-old girl who died under her care.

Back in October, Amanda Brumfield told cops the child died after falling from her playpen -- but detectives had a hard time believing her story because it wasn't consistent with the little girl's injuries.

An autopsy determined the child suffered a fractured skull and a subdural hematoma due to blunt trauma.

When the story initially broke, Thornton's publicist told TMZ that the two haven't spoken for "quite some time."

Wow, how "manly" of you Billy. Abandoning your daughter and pretending like you don't even know her? Why did you have her in the first place then you prick??? What a bastard.

The kid either hit her head falling or got hit in the head. Interesting...

Yep, that no-talent sleeze BBT being a class act yet again. Don't you just love people who seem to brag about their lack of compassion, ethics, parental responsibilities...and are completely clueless that this is a detriment to their character and not a positive?

What a complete loser...if I ever spend a penny watching any of his movies again may God strike me dead.

He and Jolie should have stayed together since thay have so much in common, whatwith her refusal to have anything to do with her dad Jon Voight.

What if her husband did it and she's covering for him?Where was HE the night of the death?I know he was the one who made the 911 call. My guess is since Billy Bob is an abuser,then his daughter probably married an abuser.Thats how it usually goes.
Has the husband been questioned and investigated?

Wouldn't falling from a playpen and landing on his head (or conking his head against the ground) cause blunt force trauma?

She got that BILLY BOB Gene... you know the one that makes you violent, rude, crude, disrespectful, ugly, ego-maniacal, promiscuous, drug-lover and last but not least ... a smoker. Hopefully one day BB will join his kin in the slam-down.

If you READ the results of the autopsy report about the babys death.The fall from the crib would'nt of killed her.It was a carpet below and not a hard surface.The baby had blunt force to her head-I think they said twice and hemorage on another part of her body.
I can't stand it when people write things here who don't read the facts and results about the case.You make yourself look stupid and ignorant.

Maybe the Boxcutters or the Buttholes or whatever the F#$K his crappy band is, can do a benifit concert and raise some cash for her defense. Let's just hope it doesn't cost more than $ 80.00 because that's all they'd raise.
Put some gravy on er Billy you... F@#ktard...Remember you're NOT WELCOME IN CANADA

listen to the tape before you comment    

Her husband was at work and had just come home so it would be highly unlikely she's covering up for HIM. It was more than likely an accident. Those with children know how quick a toddler can climb AND fall.

Only marry foreign women    

Criminal judges rarely throw women who murder children in jail. The woman sentencing discount.

Only men are bad and punished.

The apple doesn't fall from the tree. He used to be into blood like his ex-wife.
