The mother of 10 Fairfield children who police said suffered "horrible" living conditions and were subjected to "intentional" torture returned to jail Wednesday, her bail boosted and nine felony counts of child endangerment added to her existing misdemeanor. It is unclear whether Rogers was immediately put in custody.

Details of the alleged abuse were revealed in court documents.

The horrific details were included in a motion to increase the bail of Ina Rogers, 31, who was charged with nine felony counts of child abuse in Solano Superior Court.

The bathroom is strewn with faeces at the four bedroom Californian home where authorities removed 10 children. Officers said the home was filled with rotting food, feces and trash. Rogers also stated that she homeschooled her children, but neither her current home nor her previous three homes were registered as private schools as required when homeschooling in the state of California.

"My husband is an incredible person", she said. "I am an wonderful mother". Jonathan Allen, 29, father of the children, aged from four months to 12 years, denied the charges, and his wife Ina Rogers, 31, did not enter a plea. His bail was set at $5.25 million, and he is due back in court May 24, according to court records. The boy was eventually found sleeping under a bush in a neighbour's yard, police said.

Rogers' explanation of the unsanitary conditions was that she had torn the house apart looking for the 12-year-old, AP reported.

She told ABC: "I strive, I thrive on being a good parent to my children". He also faces charges of felony child abuse along with multiple charges of torture. She was released after posting $10,000 bail.

"Despite knowing she might be going into custody, Ms. Rogers appeared in court today", he pointed out. She "may not be a danger to the public at large, but these charges make clear she is a danger to the children", he said.

Hurlbut said he believed the children were home-schooled.

The initial complaint against Allen said he meant to "cause cruel and extreme pain and suffering for the goal of revenge, extortion, persuasion and for a sadistic objective, inflict great bodily injury".

"On a continuous basis the children were getting punched, strangled, bitten, shot with weapons such as crossbows and bb guns, hit with weapons such as sticks and bats, subjected to "waterboarding" and having scalding water poured on them."
Juarez also wrote that Rogers dissuaded the children from reporting their injuries to doctors to protect Allen. That year, Ina Rogers called police to tell them she'd spent the night away from home after Allen threatened to rip her head off, police said. Some of the children have been placed with her. "Absolutely not. Absolutely not", Rogers told KTXL.

Citing the serious charges and allegations and the children's injuries, Pendergast set bail at $495,000.

"My kids get bumped and bruised and scratched because they're kids, but that's it", she told reporters in front of her house, according to the Associated Press.

She said: "There's no broken bones, there is no major scars, nothing".

She said she felt unfairly judged for her lifestyle. "I would absolutely not abuse my children or sit back and let them be abused and the truth will come out because it has to".
