Couple denies torturing their 10 kids in home filled with garbage and human feces


A Northern California dad is being held on more than $5 million bail and his wife vehemently denies claims of child abuse after police say they rescued the couple's 10 children from a life of squalor and physical abuse.

Jonathan Allen, 29, on Monday pleaded not guilty to nine counts of felony torture and six counts of felony child abuse. His wife, Ina Rogers, 30, was charged with child neglect last month and is free on $10,000 bail, but authorities said she could face additional charges.
