The 12-year-old was found and returned to the Fieldstone residence.

Authorities say the children's father, 29-year-old Jonathan Allen, has pleaded not guilty to torture and child cruelty charges. She was arrested March 31 and released after posting $10,000 bail.

He says officers found spoiled food on the floor and animal and human feces when they removed 10 children from the home in March.

The mother, Ina Rogers, a 30-year-old Fairfield resident was arrested and booked into Solano County Jail for child neglect. She said she and her husband both came from broken homes and wanted a large family, according to the AP.

All 10 children were taken into protective custody by Solano County Child Welfare Services.

His bail was increased from $1.5 million to more than $5 million, Sharon Henry, the chief deputy district attorney said. She declined to elaborate.

"It literally breaks your heart, and you're outraged by how a parent or anyone could commit those acts", Henry added. He was booked into the Solano County Jail for nine counts of felony torture and six counts of felony child abuse. Once at the home, the officers conducted a search due to concerns for the safety and health of the child and the child's siblings.

The children were "living in squalor and unsafe conditions", police say.

Ina Rogers talks with reporters about the seizure of her 10 children by law enforcement in Fairfield, Calif., on May 14, 2018.

A mother of 10 children who California authorities say were tortured and neglected is denying the allegations. None of the children required medical care.

"There is not any damaged bones, there is no such thing as a main scars, nothing", Rogers informed reporters in entrance of her home.

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.

The house has four bedrooms and is located 46 miles northeast of San Francisco. 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.

She stated she feels she's being judged for having so many youngsters and selecting to home-school them. "I am 30-years-old and I have 11 children and also homeschool all of my children and people don't agree with that lifestyle". She did not say why.
