David Turpin and Lousie Turpin were back in court in Riverside County today (Friday) where they were served with an amended complaint with new charges.
The evil couple smiled at one another as they sat only a few feet apart inside the packed courtroom. New documents revealed three new charges from the Riverside District Attorney’s Office in the case that has shocked America.
They were both handed three more charges of child abuse while Lousie Turpin was charged with a felony assault also.
The evil couple – who have been married for 33 years – are pleading ‘not guilty’ to 37 charges that include torture, false imprisonment and abuse of a dependent adult.
Their 13 children were rescued from the couple’s Perris home last month after one of their daughter’s escaped and notified the police. Evidence against them includes ‘voluminous’ video, audio recordings and other physical evidence.
David Turpin, 57, appeared in a black suit with a blue shirt. He had trimmed his ‘infamous hair’ since his first court appearance, and his wife Louise, 49, wore a fitted black suit in court with no make-up . The two only spoke to confirm the date of the next court hearing as they sat with their lawyers. A felony settlement conference is set for March 23 with a Preliminary Hearing on May 14.
Lawyers for the Turpins said they are both pleading not guilty to the additional charges, filed today. Riverside DA, John Hall, revealed: “We have amended the complaint to file three new charges on both defendants of child abuse, and one new count against only defendant Louise Turpin of felony assault. “There have been no counts that have been removed, and no other additional counts other than those.”
