Missouri court: Frozen embryos are joint property

(KSDK) The Missouri Court of Appeals upheld a ruling Tuesday saying both parents have custody of frozen embryos after the couple divorced.

The ruling stemmed from a case involving a St. Louis County couple.

Justin Gadberry and Jasha McQueen created several embryos while they were still married. They had two children as a result. Two more frozen embryos remained frozen when the couple divorced in 2014.
