HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – The trial for the father of Discovery Middle School shooter Hammad Memon has been delayed.

Dr. Memon, the trial was delayed until April 7 at 9 a.m.
Hammad and his mother, Safia, were arrested in Dallas. Safia has since pleaded guilty and received a one-year suspended sentence.
Madison County Circuit Judge Donna Pate said there were other trials on the docket ahead of it, and it was also a matter of getting it rescheduled with the attorneys.
Dr. Memon’s son, Hammad, was convicted of the murder of Todd Brown at Discovery Middle School in Madison in February 2010. He is serving a 30-year sentence.
