A man walks past the residence of Wayne Sperling, on Tuesday, Oct. 8 2013, the day of the first hearing in his felony child abuse case, in Denver. Sperling, 66, who is in custody, and Lorinda Bailey, 35, who is free on bond, are charged with child abuse for allegedly starving their four sons, ages 2, 4, 5 and 6, and keeping them in an apartment full of feces and flies. All four children have been placed in protective care and have undergone hospital exams that found that they could only communicate in grunts, were malnourished and were not toilet trained, according to an arrest affidavit.
