The father of one of two Iowa cousins found dead following their disappearance last summer is facing new drug charges.

Thirty-six-year-old Daniel Morrissey of Waterloo is being charged with trying to make methamphetamine and possessing simulated meth sometime between December 1st and his February 11th arrest for failing to comply with conditions of his pre-trial release.

Morrrissey's daughter, Lyric Cook, disappeared with her cousin Elizabeth Collins while riding bikes in Evansdale last July. Their bodies were found in December.

Morrissey pleaded guilty to seven meth and marijuana felonies earlier this month, so he's already facing significant prison time.

Morrissey made an initial appearance on the new charges on Friday. He could receive an enhanced sentence on the new charges because of his record.
