FAIRFIELD, Calif. (AP) — The Latest on charges filed against California father accused of torturing children (all times local):

1:30 p.m.

California prosecutors say 10 children rescued from a filthy, abusive home were subjected to 'waterboarding,' shot with crossbows and had scalding water poured on them.

Solano County prosecutors included the details in a motion to increase the bail of Ina Rogers, who was charged with nine counts of felony child abuse Wednesday. She has not entered a plea.

Deputy District Attorney Veronica Juarez wrote that Rogers assisted in the abuse of the children by her husband, Jonathan Allen.

Juarez wrote that Rogers dissuaded the children from reporting their injuries, which include broken arms, in order to protect Allen.

The report also states that when police arrived at the Fairfield, California, home to search for a missing 12-year-old, they found nine children huddled together amid filth.

12:30 p.m.

A California father charged with torturing his children was charged with domestic violence in 2011.

Solano County court records show that Jonathan Allen was charged with four felonies including corporal injury, assault with a firearm and criminal threats.

Allen and Ina Rogers of Fairfield, California, have 10 children and are in jail on felony child abuse charges.

The records identify the victim in 2011 as Allen's spouse and list her initials, I.R. Prosecutors alleged Allen used a .22 caliber revolver in some of the crimes.

He pleaded no contest to corporal injury as part of a deal with prosecutors. He was sentenced to 180 days and three years of probation.

Prosecutors dropped the other charges.

10:30 a.m.

A California mother of 10 children who officials say suffered long-term abuse returned to court to face new charges of felony child abuse.

Ina Rogers did not enter a plea Wednesday in Solano Superior Court.

Judge William J. Pendergast set bail for the 31-year-old Fairfield, California mother at $495,000, saying that she remains a danger to the children. It was unclear whether she was immediately taken into custody because reporters were ordered to leave the courtroom.

The children's father, 29-year-old Jonathan Allen, pleaded not guilty to charges of torture and child cruelty and is being held on $5.2 million bail.

Authorities allege Rogers put the children in a situation that was likely to great bodily injury or death.

Both parents have denied the allegations.

12:05 a.m.

Prosecutors say they will file nine counts of felony child abuse against the California mother of 10 children who officials say suffered long-term abuse in a filthy home.

Ina Rogers is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.

Solano County Deputy District Attorney Veronica Juarez filed a notice with the court Tuesday in the case against the 31-year-old.

The charges allege that Rogers caused the children to be in a situation that was likely to produce great bodily injury and death.

Rogers told reporters earlier this week that the allegations against her and her husband are false.

The children's father, 29-year-old Jonathan Allen, pleaded not guilty to torture and child cruelty charges and is being held on $5.2 million bail.
