ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A Roanoke couple who wanted to collect their son's sperm after he died wasn't able to do so.

Jerri and Rufus McGill had wanted grandchildren. But Jerri McGill tells The Roanoke Times that there wasn't enough time to get a court order so doctors could extract and freeze their son's sperm.

Nineteen-year-old Rufus McGill II had been in critical condition since a traffic accident on Oct. 14.

Oakey's Funeral Service and Crematory says Rufus McGill II died Thursday. Funeral services are scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday at Oakey's Roanoke chapel.

Jerri McGill says she's sad that she won't be able to have a part of him with her.
