The Turpins have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.

As he puts it: "We were all like a part of their nightmare".

While Riverside County prosecutors told of David Turpin, 57 and Louise Turpin, 49 limiting their children to eating one meal a day along with taunting them by buying apple and pumpkin pies, which they were only allowed to look at but never eat, Perry City officials told of the children's mother making sure the family dogs were 'always well fed'.

According to the sheriff's department, a 17-year-old girl fled the house in the 100 block of Muir Woods Road early Sunday morning and was able to call 911 using a cellphone she had taken from the home. She and her siblings were so malnourished the adult children were initially believed to be minors.

From an examination viewpoint, the main compositions that could even freely contrast with the children's journals would originate from jail detainees or the popular journal of Anne Blunt, a Jewish young person who chronicled her life as she escaped the Nazis amid World War II, Pennebaker said. He and his wife have both pleaded not guilty and are now being held on bail of $13 million each.

The couple have been charged with 75 counts of child abuse, torture, false imprisonment after police raided their home and found their 13 starving children chained to beds in disgusting conditions.

James Turpin of Princeton, West Virginia, told The Associated Press he's going to talk to his son's children to "find out the real story" as soon as he can get a call through to them.

Forensic experts searching the home of David and Louise Turpin have unearthed a perfectly alphabetised DVD collection that includes Casper, Cars and Everybody Loves Raymond, despite reports they denied their children toys.

Officials said the children, ranging in age from 2 to 29, were so malnourished the older ones looked like children. They have little knowledge of outside world; they did not know what a police officer was, didn't know what medicine is. A 12-year-old victim was the weight of a typical 7-year-old, Hestrin said. The children were also allegedly shackled for months at a time, and often "not released to go to the bathroom" and were "not allowed to shower more than once a year".

The sister of a woman who along with her husband faces allegations of keeping their 13 children captive in their California home says her nieces and nephews faced an extremely strict existence. They are scheduled to appear in court on February 23. Outline of accusations against Turpin parentsThe images appear to show carpets and walls covered in large stains. Hestrin said that the Turpin parents would only let the children shower once a year, and if they washed their hands above the wrist, they would be punished for, quote, "playing in the water".

"You can't cross examine a journal, you have to cross examine the children, but they are a still a good starting point", Levenson said. Prosecutors said the abuse started when the family was living in Texas, but the plan to escape was hatched about two years ago. She says her son shared her Pentecostal Christian faith but he wasn't affiliated with a church in California.

The parents of the siblings, David and Louise Turpin, are due to appear before a judge in California.
