by at .

Amanda Brumfield, the oldest daughter of Billy Bob Thornton, is in a lot of trouble with the law:

She's been charged with child neglect in the death of a one-year old she was babysitting.

Brumfield told police the baby died in October, following a fall from her playpen. However, the Ocoee Police Department isn't buying the tale.

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

Here is Brumfield's version of events:

  • After the baby fell, she cleansed her bleeding tongue with a paper towel;
  • Brumfield and the child then played together, followed by a snack of bananas and fruit for the baby.
  • After a nap for both, Brumfield says she picked up the child and it was limp. After that, she called 911.

Police records indicate that the emergency call did not take place until two and a half hours after the original fall.
