A cruel California couple tortured their 10 children “for sadistic purposes” at a house of horrors cops found packed with trash and feces, authorities said Monday.
The kids, whose ages range from 4 months to 12 years old, were forced to share one bedroom at the Fairfield home.
When the children were removed in March, they told investigators of intentional puncture wounds consistent with a pellet gun, in addition to burns and bruises. Their parents, Jonathan Allen and Ina Rogers, have been accused of abusing the children, according to police.
“It literally breaks your heart, and you’re outraged by how a parent or anyone could commit those acts,” said Sharon Henry, the chief deputy district attorney for Solano County.
The decision to remove the kids was made on March 31, when cops found “unsanitary living conditions” while looking for Rogers’ missing oldest child.
Fairfield police Lt. Greg Hurlbut said that officers saw “spoiled food on the floor, animal and human feces and a large amount of debris making areas of the house unpassable.”
