HICKS, J. The defendant, Jessica Botelho, appeals her convictions of manslaughter, see RSA 630:2, I(b) (2007); negligent homicide, see RSA 630:3, I (2007); and reckless conduct, see RSA 631:3, I (2007), following a jury trial in Superior Court (Garfunkel, J.). She argues that the trial court erred: (1) by admitting into evidence the name and description of a particular website that she visited while leaving her children unattended in her bathtub; and (2) by excluding certain portions of a recorded police interview. We affirm.
