WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - The father of one of two slain Iowa cousins has been jailed for violating the terms of his release while awaiting trial on drug and domestic assault charges.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that police on Monday arrested 36-year-old Daniel Morrissey. He's the father of 10-year-old Lyric Cook, who disappeared with her younger cousin in July. Their bodies were found in December.
A Department of Correctional Services report alleges Morrissey "should be considered a danger to the community and himself" because he tested positive for meth and marijuana last week -- while already facing charges of manufacturing and delivering meth.
The report says Morrissey missed some treatment sessions and sometimes failed to check in with his probation officer.
Morrissey's in the Black Hawk County jail on a $365,000 bond.
