MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Hammad Memon had his bond revoked after a hearing with Judge Karen Hall on Thursday morning.

"I thoroughly anticipated that given what happened the past few days that would be the result," said Memon's attorney, Bruce Gardner.

Hammad Memon is accused of killing a fellow student, Todd Brown, at Discovery Middle School in 2010.

The case was set to go to trial on June 18th of this year, but Friday Madison Police and the Madison District Attorney's office discovered both Hammad Memon and his mother, Safia Memon were planning on leaving the country.

Dr. Iqbal Memon, Hammad's father, told authorities Hammad and his wife were in Atlanta. He changed his story several times.

Authorities talked to Safia on the phone when Hammad went missing. She hung up after saying she was in Atlanta.

When the Memons said they were in Atlanta, authorities pinged a cell phone to Louisiana and then Dallas. During at least one of the cell phone pings, the Memons were near the Dallas Airport.

When Dallas Police found Safia & son Hammad Memon at a Greyhound bus station Friday night, they both pleaded the 5th and didn't talk to investigators. Authorities found around $3,600 in cash on the Memons.

Hammad Memon was brought back into Madison county, AL from Dallas, TX on Wednesday night. Safia Memon will be brought back to Alabama on April 27th to face her charges.

"This was a whirlwind over the past week, but the big picture is what happened at Discovery, and that's what we're focusing on, and now we're focusing on the trial," said Assistant Madison County District Attorney Tim Gann.
