ORLANDO, Fla., July 25 (UPI) -- A jail official in Orange County, Fla., says actor Billy Bob Thornton's estranged daughter, Amanda Brumfield, is free on $279,000 bail.
The Orlando Sentinel said Saturday that while Brumfield was released from jail Friday, her Orange County circuit court case on first-degree murder charges is still pending.
In addition to the murder charges, Brumfield, 29, is facing charges of aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter over the death of 1-year-old Olivia Garcia.
Brumfield, who has two children of her own, was baby-sitting Garcia when the child suffered a large skull fracture and died.
Brumfield alleges Garcia received the injury falling from her playpen, but investigators and a medical examiner say they suspect the young girl died as a result of a homicide, the newspaper said.
Orange Circuit Court Judge Bob Wattles has scheduled Brumfield's trial to begin in December, the Sentinel reported.
