Billy Bob Thornton's estranged daughter Amanda Brumfield, 32, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for the aggravated manslaughter of Olivia Madison Garcia, the one-year-old daughter of Brumfield's close friend, Heather Murphy.

While Brumfield was convicted on the manslaughter charge, she was acquitted of first degree murder, according to Reuters. Brumfield said in court that the baby had fallen out of a playpen and hit her head, but prosecutors countered that the injury was not an accident.

When Murphy heard about the sentencing, she was reportedly shocked at the length of the prison term, but stated, "None of it satisfies me. It doesn't matter ... I won't ever see Olivia again."

According to Reuters, after Brumfield's 2009 arrest, one of Thornton's reps told CNN that he "has had no contact with her for quite some time."
