Prosecutors filed charges of torture, child abuse, dependent adult abuse and false imprisonment. David Turpin was additionally charged with performing a lewd act on a child under age 14. The family briefly lived in Texas before moving to California.

    Abuse in house of torture was 'severe, pervasive, prolonged'
    RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - A California couple tortured a dozen of their children for years, starving them to the point that their growth was stunted, chaining them to their beds for up to months, preventing them from using the toilet at times and forbidding them from showering more than once a year, a prosecutor said Thursday.
