EASTON, Pa. (AP) - Two Allentown men have been ordered to stand trial in a shootout at an eastern Pennsylvania social club that killed a woman and injured five other people.

The Easton Express-Times says a Northampton County judge on Monday ruled the prosecutors had enough evidence against 32-year-old Rene Figueroa and 40-year-old Javier Rivera-Alvarado for the case to move to county court.

Figueroa is charged with criminal homicide in the shooting death of 23-year-old Yolanda Morales.

Rivera-Alvarado is charged with attempted homicide and related offenses.

Authorities said the early morning gunfire in December outside the Puerto Rican Beneficial Society in Bethlehem stemmed from an argument earlier inside the club.

Prosecutors on Monday added aggravated assault charges in connection with all of the victims.

Hang them both NOW. No trial needed.
