The mother of a man who was dragged to death said an autopsy shows his body was so badly mangled that it couldn't be embalmed. Jacqueline McClelland tells Dallas-Fort Worth television station WFAA that she's seen a copy of an autopsy report on Brandon McClelland.

McClelland indicated the autopsy report says her son's skull was severely fractured and one of his legs was almost ripped off.

Authorities have said two suspects, both of them white, purposely ran over and killed the 24-year-old black man, following an argument on the way home from a late-night beer run in September.

The family has met with a special prosecutor and the case is expected to go to the grand jury next week.
