Two people knocked on Ina Rogers' door Tuesday morning in Fairfield and identified themselves as being from the public defender's office. Rogers did not want to open the door, but they coaxed her into doing it quickly and letting them slip in with her out of view of the TV cameras. On Monday, she publicly declared her innocence.

Rogers' neighbor across the street told ABC7 News he is surprised to hear about the accusations against the couple. Larry Magnaye says he had no idea 10 kids lived across the street -- he says he never saw them.
Rogers faces child endangerment charges. Her husband, Jonathan Allen, faces several charges of abuse against their 10 children -- ages 4 months to 12-years-old. Police and prosecutors say they were horrified by the statements from some of the kids.

The children have been removed from the home and placed with relatives. Rogers is out on bail while Allen remains in jail. Prosecutors are considering more charges.
