Abuse, torture alleged in 10-kid Fairfield family

Separately, prosecutors in Riverside County filed eight new charges against a father accused of shackling and starving some of his 13 children, alleging that he lied on government forms about their schooling.

According to the Fairfield police, the house was in a awful condition with human and animal feces, urine, garbage and rotten food scattered across the floor. There was so much debris that some areas of the home were unaccessible, according to Hurlbut. In interviews the children described incidents of intentional abuse resulting in puncture wounds, burns, bruising and injuries consistent with being shot with a BB gun or pellet gun.

David and Louise Turpin previously pleaded not guilty to torture, child abuse and other charges in a case that has drawn global attention since the couple's 17-year-old daughter escaped the family's Perris, California, home in January. "I've been in law enforcement since.well. more than 30 years ago", said Hurlbut.

Ina Rogers was arrested and charged with neglect, while Jonathan Allen was arrested and charged with nine counts of felony torture and six counts of child abuse.

"It's a pretty big house", Magnaye said.

"Not only do I have 11 children - and I am 30 years old - but I also home school all of my children and people don't agree with that lifestyle", Rogers said.

Rogers said the children slept in one bedroom because they were close; cots were stored in a bedroom closet.

Fairfield police located the boy asleep under a bush and returned him to the family home in the 2200 block of Fieldstone Court.

"It was obviously unsanitary and not a condition that children - or any human probably - should be living in at the time", Fairfield police Lt. Greg Hurlbut said Monday.

According to Associated Press, the mother stated that the house was in that condition because she tore it apart while looking for her missing son, who was, according to her, angry because his tablet computer was taken away. "However I do not know how one can hold it quiet when you could have 10 children". She was later released after posting $10,000 bail April 9.

After investigators entered the home, Rogers' children were taken by child protective services and she was charged with child neglect. Children were also victim of physical and emotional abuse.

She gave reporters a tour of her home on Monday, denying that her husband had abused the youngsters.

The children were between the ages of four months and 12 years old, and were all homeschooled. "And so I've had many people question my right to parent and I feel this whole situation has exploded". His bail was set at $5.25 million, and he is due back in court May 24, according to court records. Eight of the ten children are Rogers' and Allen's biological children. Rogers faces child endangerment charges.

"This is absolutely appalling", Rogers said.

"I strive and I pride myself on being a good parent to my children", Rogers told CNN affiliate KGO/KTXL.

My husband has a lot of tattoos, he looks like a scary individual, and that's why people are so quick to judge him. My husband is an fantastic person and I am an wonderful mother.

"There's no broken bones, there is no major scars, nothing", Rogers told reporters in front of her house.
