The Amalia compound suspects will remain behind bars at least for another week. 

The five suspects were taken to federal court Wednesday for a detention hearing, but a judge postponed it. 

The group was arrested last month after authorities raided their compound in Amalia and found 11 malnourished children and the remains of a 12th. 

They also found 11 guns and large amounts of ammo. 

They are facing federal gun charges. 

The hearing to see if they’ll get out will be on Wednesday, Sep. 12.
