LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- Two men who are accused of killing a 20-year-old La Crosse woman during an attempted robbery will have to stand trial. A La Crosse County judge found probable cause for the proceedings to continue. Both men are being held on $1 million cash bond.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Investigators are trying to figure out whether illegal drugs may have played a role in the death of a 2-year-old Dane County girl who died after she drank gasoline. Court documents say the girl's 4-year-old brother had cocaine in his system. Authorities say the two children drank the fuel after they locked themselves in a car.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin regulators are meeting today to decide whether to approve a 55-mile power line that would run between Alma and Holmen in western Wisconsin. The $234 million project would link to a larger transmission project that would serve Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and the Dakotas.

MONROE, Wis. (AP) -- A Monroe cheesemaker is dropping the word "gruyere" from one of its cheeses, bowing to pressure from its Swiss parent company and the Swiss Gruyere industry. Emmi Roth USA says its Grand Cru Gruyere will be known simply as Grand Cru. Officials said they decided to make the change because the cheese isn't made in the Gruyere region of Switzerland.
