MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

16 year-old Hammad Memon is expected to return to Madison County this week.

His mother, Safia, will return at a later date.

Dallas Police arrested them Friday after a judge revoked the accused teen murder's bond.

Memon's father, Iqbal, is out of jail on bond and both parents are charged with hindering prosecution.

According to the Madison County District Attorney's Office, Memon's parents tried to get him out of the country so he could avoid his upcoming murder trial.

He's charged with the 2010 murder of 14-year-old Todd Brown, a classmate at Discovery Middle School.

Extradition papers were filed Monday afternoon.

Memon waived his extradition, meaning he chose not to fight it, which will speed up the process to get him back to Madison County.

A manhunt for Memon began Friday afternoon when authorities revoked his bond after learning he was sent a Pakistani passport.

It prompted the search for the teen and his mother which took investigators all the way to Dallas to track them down by their cell phone signal.

"The intent was to leave the country," said Assistant DA Tim Gann.

Local authorities will pick Memon up in Dallas and once in Madison County, he will face a judge for a bond hearing.

At this point, it's likely his bond will be permanently revoked and he will remain in jail till his murder trial.
