People v. Rivera, 48

Defendant's conviction of first-degree manslaughter is affirmed, where the trial judge did not err in refusing to instruct the jury on second-degree manslaughter in addition to first-degree manslaughter, because the record does not reasonably support that defendant acted with mere recklessness.
