Parents of ten children from Fairfield, CA, are facing several felony charges after police discovered the state of their home and the condition of their children leading to suspicion that the kids have been subject to neglect and abuse.

29-year-old Jonathan Allen and his wife, 30-year-old Ina Rogers, have been together as a couple since they were teenagers. When she was 16-years-old Rogers and Allen had their first child together, and in their desire to have a large family they now raise 10 children in their home, 8 of which Rogers is the father. The children range in age with the youngest being 4-months-old and the oldest 12.

Rogers, who works full time as an EKG technician on the graveyard shift, home schools her children as well, and Allen is employed as a tattoo artist that reportedly enjoys spending time interacting and playing video games with the kids.

On Thursday, Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call from an undisclosed party reporting the need for a welfare check at Camp Pendleton. When they arrived they discovered the body of a 23-year-old mother of three in her Laguna Hills apartment who had been shot multiple times. The victim’s name remains confidential at this time as authorities had not yet notified her family.

Jerel Boykins, a 26-year-old U.S. Marine and the estranged husband of the victim was held as a suspect by authorities soon after his wife’s body was found. He was arrested as the alleged perpetrator the day after the shooting occurred.

Court records indicate the victim had filed for a restraining order early in September, and she submitted a detailed letter describing several occurrences where Boykins allegedly used physical violence or threats against her and other family members.
