            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Story County, Angela L. Doyle, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., and Greer and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by May, P.J.  (7 pages)

            Jordan Bryant was convicted of third-degree robbery and involuntary manslaughter.  She argues her robbery conviction should merge into her involuntary manslaughter conviction.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the district court because it would be possible to commit the manslaughter offense without necessarily committing the robbery offense.
