Fairfield police removed the children from the house March 31 after Rogers reported her oldest child was missing, saying he had run away after she took away his tablet computer as punishment.
Police said on Monday that the parents Jonathan Allen, 29, and Ina Rogers, 30, had been arrested and charged.
A California woman whose 10 children were removed from a home described as filthy by authorities denied that she or her husband had abused or neglected the kids, telling reporters on Monday that the children all slept in one bedroom together because they wanted to. "Why would I ever have a house of children that are abused or allow them to be abused?"
They found another nine children, "rescued from terrible living conditions", according to a Fairfield police press release. "Officers located unsafe and unsanitary living conditions including garbage and spoiled food on the floor, animal and human feces and a large amount of debris making areas of the house unpassable", he said.
The 10 children were placed in protective custody by Solano County Child Welfare Services. She was later released after posting $10,000 bail April 9. The father, Jonathan Allen, 29, faces felony charges of torture and child abuse and the 30-year-old mother Ina Rogers faces child neglect charges. Officers then conducted a "health and safety search", which led to the arrest of Rogers that day and the removal of 10 children from the home. Allen said she is estranged from her son and that he has kept his family away from the grandchildren. "So I ripped up my whole house. tore everything out of the closet, lifted up the beds". However tales about abuse got here out steadily over the previous six weeks and eight of the youngsters informed professionals about incidents relationship again a number of years, authorities stated.
On March 31, police responded to a report of a missing juvenile in the 2200 block of Fieldstone Ct.
She gave reporters a tour of her home on Monday, denying that her husband had abused the youngsters.
"With the assistance of Child Welfare Services and the Solano County District Attorney's Office, detectives with the Fairfield Police Department's Family Violence Unit initiated an investigation", police said. He's being held in lieu of $1.5 million bail. The Fairfield resident went on to say that she has 11 biological children ages four months to 14 years old. "He does have a lot of tattoos. he does look a little scary so it's easy to think that he's a monster, but he's not". The children, authorities said, were home-schooled.
During the tour, the four-bedroom house in Fairfield appeared messy with scuffed walls and animal feces in the bathroom. She said the squalor was from her tearing their house apart trying to find her child.
Children taken from a squalid California home had been tortured for "sadistic purposes", a prosecutor has alleged.
"She was pretty concerned, and she was like, you know, running around the neighborhood", Magney said, adding that he was "shocked" to learn that 10 children were living in the house, the Chronicle reported.
Rogers showed reporters the inside of her home, which she claims was left messy by police after their search.
