FAIRFIELD, Calif. -- (KRON) -- Prosecutors have added four charges of lewd conduct against a father accused of torturing his children in a Fairfield home where prosecutors say 10 children lived in filth and neglect.
The charges against the 29-year-old man were filed Thursday as he and his 31-year-old wife appeared jointly in Solano County Superior Court.
The father, Jonathan Allen, faces nine counts of felony child abuse, seven counts of felony torture and four counts of lewd conduct on a child under 14.
The mother, Ina Rogers, faces nine counts of felony child abuse and one count of child neglect involving all 10 children. Both have pleaded not guilty.
Solano County authorities say their children suffered puncture wounds, burns, bruising and injuries consistent with being shot with a pellet gun.
Rogers and Allen were arrested after their 12-year-old child was reported missing.
Once the child was found they searched the home due to concerns for the safety and health of the other kids.
Officers found nine more children, ranging in age from four months to 11-years-old.
