MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) -- A Medford couple has pleaded not guilty to charges of neglecting and mistreating their four children who were found in filthy conditions, locked in a room at their home.

At their arraignment Monday in Jackson County Circuit Court, 29-year-old Jeramy Allen Hon and 23-year-old Cassandra Lynn Regain were ordered held with bail set at $1 million each.

The Mail Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/sN3xnx) Medford police went to the home Thursday after receiving an anonymous report the children were neglected. Police said the children -- ages 6 months to 4 years old -- appeared neglected and were using a heater vent as a toilet because they did not have access to a restroom.

The children are now in the care of the Department of Human Services.
