You should download the A58 Handbook, which describes that and many other things. Page 153 in the English version from here or page 161 in the the Spanish version from here.

You can delete all images in a folder, or you can reformat a card to delete all images & videos at once, but you cannot select multiple images for deletion and leave the rest there. The easiest way to do that is by plugging the SD card into a laptop or tablet (which probably needs an adapter, mine does).

If you haven't got a manual - https://docs.sony.com/release/SLTA58.pdf

Just had a play with my A58 and you can select images for deletion - sorry for the misinformation!

Very bad idea.
The camera is building up a database file of the files.
If you delete images outside of the camera the db file won't be synchronized and could end up with problems
Minolta: XG1/ D7D/<beercan>135 f2.8/ 35-70 f4/ 35-105/ 70-210 f4/ 100-200 f4.5</beercan>/ 500 f8/ 17-35 f2.8-4/   50 f1.7/   50 & 100 f2.8 macro
Sony: A58/ A77ii / 28-75 f2.8 SAM/ DT 35 f1.8/ 85 f2.8

That sounds unlikely, you're basically saying the camera stores the database on the camera itself, but that could mean the camera has to remember dozens of memory cards, that is unlikely. It probably works the same as a computer, then it also doesn't matter how you do it.

I don't do it a lot, because I rarely delete some rather than the lot, which I routinely do in camera - but I do use SD cards in multiple bodies, swapping randomly - which must confuse any body that is trying to keep track!

I shot over 77,000 images on my A58 and always deleted the images with the PC normally with an import dialog, and never had issues. The worse thing that happens is the camera shows a question mark and "Unable to display" for the deleted images. My main 64 GB card shows 13,705 images taken on it right now, but only two images are actually on it. I have occasionally formatted the card in the camera because it should be more like 100,000+.

Formatting the card might cause slightly less flash wear than letting windows delete the files individually. Neither actually deletes image data from the card.
