Iowa City Couple Exposed Kids To Meth, Used Stun Gun, Officials Say

  • Photo
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- An Iowa City couple faces six counts of child endangerment for allegedly exposing three children to methamphetamine.

The couple is also accused of tying up one of the children and using a stun gun on him.

According to Iowa City police criminal complaints, a narcotics investigation in September 2013 showed that 27-year-old Luis Fernando Chavez-Preciado and 25-year-old Nasra Lorette Fernandez-Kury, both of 3300 E. Washington St., had roughly 2.5 pounds of meth in the residence. Police said the couple shares the residence with Fernandez-Kury's three children, all who are under eight years old.

When police responded to the residence, they discovered a 5-year-old boy tied up with his hands behind his back. He had minor injuries to his wrist, unexplained bruising on his arms, chest and back and reported being tied up "like a cop," police said. The boy also told another adult that his mother used a Taser on him once.

Police said they discovered surveillance equipment, a shotgun, a digital scale and a Taser.

The couple was arrested on Sunday. Both face three counts of child endangerment - meth exposure, a class D felony.
