Can a landlord charge us a lease termination fee if we're breaking the lease over a non-disclosed cockroach infestation?

Question Details: We have cockroaches in our new apartment. This was not disclosed to us prior to moving in. The landlords admitted to "bombing" the apartment prior to our move-in, however we're still finding them and their bodies in the place. We have somewhere to move, but they're trying to charge us half the lease termination fee, but we don't feel that we should have to pay the termination fee when they failed to disclose the infestation and bombing to us. Do we have a leg to stand on?
