DENVER (AP) A Denver couple accused of starving their four sons and keeping them in squalid conditions are due in court to face charges Tuesday morning.

Wayne Sperling and Lorinda Bailey have each been charged with four counts of felony child abuse

The boys are 2, 4, 5 and 6. An affidavit says they weren't toilet trained, had no schooling and spoke in "their own language" of grunts to each other.

Authorities found the children living in a residence full of cat and human feces, urine, and flies. All have been placed in protective care.
