She declined to elaborate.

A Fairfield press release described the children as being "rescues from terrible living conditions" that were "in squalor and unsafe".

Police discovered filthy circumstances within the residence shared by Rogers and Allen, police Lt. Greg Hurlbut stated.

Police added that officers found spoiled food on the floor and animal and human feces at the house. She was released after posting $10,000 bail.

They found another nine children, "rescued from awful living conditions", according to a Fairfield police press release. The children, ranging from 4 months to 11 years old, were removed from the home and eventually placed with various family members, Hurlbut said.

The mother, Ina Rogers, a 30-year-old Fairfield resident was arrested and booked into Solano County Jail for child neglect.

On Friday, officers arrested Allen, charging him with nine counts of felony torture and six counts of child abuse.

She denied Monday her husband had abused the children. Police say the victims...his own children.

His remarks were played up by the Indian media as an admission of Pakistan's involvement in the terrorist attacks. Afghanistan's narrative is being accepted, but ours is not. "We must look into it", he said.

Rogers informed reporters she's shocked police had leveled essentially the most severe accusations in opposition to her husband, as he was not the disciplinarian of the household.

Rogers showed reporters the inside of her home, which she claims was left messy by police after their search. "My kids get bumped and bruised and scratched because they're kids but that's it".

The investigation began March 31, when police responded to the missing juvenile report in Fairfield, 46 miles northeast of San Francisco. She said the children slept on cots in one bedroom because they were close. The opposite rooms have been used as a master suite, playroom and meditation room.

She said the "squalor" officers saw while investigating came from her tearing her house apart as she searched for her child. Hurlbut said some areas of the home were impassable. "I work graveyard." Rogers said.

Child protection officials made one prior visit to the home several years ago, Rogers said. She did not say why.

Court records don't indicate whether the parents have attorneys. "I was afraid I could not find him", she said.

A horrified Peggy Allen, Allen's mother, said she had talked to Rogers about the dirty condition of the home, saying it was important to keep a clean house. He told her it was unlikely her son was in his back yard because his dog would have barked, he said, according to the Chronicle.

"We're a Christian family and Jonathan has not been raised that way", she said. Authorities described the living conditions of the house as "squalor" and "unsafe".

The children did not require medical attention when they were removed from the home.

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