WATERLOO, Iowa The father of one of the cousins abducted from Evansdale last year faces additional drug charges.

Daniel Eugene Morrissey, 36, of Waterloo, has been in custody since Feb. 11 for failing to keep appointments with a pre-trial probation officer at the time and allegedly using drugs.

Morrissey most recently is charged with conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and possession of a simulated methamphetamine, Class C felonies; ongoing criminal conduct, a Class B felony; possession of ephedrine, third-offense possession of methamphetamine and third-offense possession of marijuana, all Class D felonies.

The charges stem from events that occurred between Dec. 1, 2012, and his February arrest. He is subject to enhanced sentencing because of prior convictions.

During an initial appearance in Black Hawk County District Court on Friday, Morrissey gave a judge his address of 133 University Ave. and indicated he has an attorney, Kevin Schoeberl.

He already is facing upward of two centuries in prison after pleading guilty to seven meth and marijuana felonies earlier this month.

Morrissey is the father of Lyric Cook-Morrissey, who disappeared in July and was found dead in December with her cousin Elizabeth Collins. An investigation continues and no one has been charged in their deaths.

Bond is set at $50,000 cash security.
