HUNTSVILLE, AL - (WAFF) 15 year old Hammad Memon, charged with the murder of 14-year-old Discovery Middle School classmate Todd Brown, will be moved to a state mental hospital Thursday.

Memon will stay at Bryce Hospital until his trial.

Memon will go through a complete mental assessment and evaluation. Then, a report will be sent to the court outlining his diagnosis, treatment and prognosis.

Defense attorney Bruce Gardner said his client has expressed remorse and that he knew what he was doing the day of the shooting.

"This man is very seriously mentally ill. When I say that, I'm not excusing his conduct for what he did. Its not of that nature. What I'm saying is he is very seriously mentally ill right now and he is 15-years-old, and does not need to be at this point in an adult penal facility," Gardner said.
