TACOMA — A judge has found that the father-in-law of missing Utah woman Susan Powell is in violation of a court order for failing to get mandated sexual-deviancy treatment and has been ordered to spend an additional 40 days in jail.

KOMO reports the ruling against Steven Powell was made Wednesday in Pierce County Superior Court.

Powell was convicted of voyeurism in 2012 and served 30 months in prison. Last month, Pierce County prosecutors reinstated a child pornography charge against Powell that had been dismissed during a 2012 trial. On Wednesday,  that new trial was scheduled for next year.

Powell is the father of Josh Powell, who killed his two sons and himself in February 2012 while under investigation for the disappearance of his wife.
