I canceled a bootcamp install of Windows 10 because it was taking AGES to work. Anyhow, I now have a partition on my MacBook I cannot seem to get rid of. If there is nothing on the extra partition (the 58 GB), how can I merge it back into my regular disk and get that space back?

Here is what shows after running diskutil list
