David Justice had a pair of home runs and four RBIs to back Burba, who won his fifth consecutive decision and led the Cleveland Indians over the Brewers 8-4 Monday night.

Burba (6-1) allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings, striking out eight as Cleveland won its third straight. He improved to 3-0 with a 2.38 ERA against the Brewers.

A former Keshena woman will stand trial on charges she abducted her three young children on May 10.

At the conclusion of a preliminary hearing Monday in Shawano County Circuit Court, Judge Thomas Grover ruled there was sufficient evidence to order 46-year-old Marcella Roth stand trial on three counts of interfering with child custody and a 1998 forgery. She remains in the Shawano County Jail, unable to post the $11,000 cash bail.
