The American parents accused of holding their 13 children in shackles at a California home have pleaded not guilty. David Turpin, 56, and Louise Turpin, 49, are facing charges of torture, abuse and false imprisonment.They were arrested after their daughter escaped from their home where police found some of her siblings chained to their beds and severely malnourished. The couple appeared in court hours after prosecutors detailed the horrific abuse allegations against them.Riverside County District Attorney Mike Hestrin said the couple had allegedly punished their children by tying them up – first using ropes and later chaining them to their beds with padlocks. He said the alleged punishments would last weeks or months, and intensified over time. Prosecutors said circumstantial evidence showed the children were not released from their chains to go to the toilet. The children, who are aged between two and 29 , have been treated in hospital since being freed on Monday.Photo Credit: Getty
