KRON4's Lydia Pantazes is at the house in Fairfield this morning. In some areas, debris was piled to the point of making it unable to pass through.

"That's why this is absolutely insane", Rogers said of the children's father.

Authorities described injuries to the children, including some that appeared to have been caused by someone shooting a pellet gun.

Henry expects "appropriate charges" to be added in the coming days to the case against the children's mother, Ina Rogers, 30, who now faces a misdemeanor count of child endangerment. "I've been in law enforcement since.well. more than 30 years ago", said Hurlbut.

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

Aleida Quartman, 23, who said she works with Rogers, said she spoiled her children and the messy house was just life with children, cats, a dog and fish.

Hurblut said he believed the children had been home-schooled, but couldn't say if authorities had been contacted in the past about their living conditions.

Rogers told the media that the reason the home was in disarray was because she tore up her house looking for her missing child. "I was afraid that I could not find him". She posted $10,000 bond on April 9 and a pre-trial conference will be held July 16.

The police Family Violence Unit, Child Welfare Services and the District Attorney's Office then launched an investigation.

Rogers said the children slept in one bedroom because they were close; cots were stored in a bedroom closet.

Police said an investigation into the family revealed a 'long and continuous history of severe physical and emotional abuse of the children'.

The police were made aware of the terrible conditions of the household after a 12-year-old boy was brought back to the house. "So, I've had many people question my right to parent and I just feel like this whole situation was exploded".
