MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The hearing for Hammad Memon on Thursday was the first time Todd Brown's family came face to face with Hammad. 

A large number of Brown's family filed into the courtroom. 

They sat on one side as Memon sat on the other, flanked by his attorney, Bruce Gardner.

Memon did not speak or make eye contact with the Brown family and only looked at the judge during his bond revocation hearing.

Memon showed little reaction as Judge Karen Hall revoked his bond.

Lucille Hurst is Brown's grandmother.

She sat across the courtroom, with other members of the family, staring down the teen charged with killing Brown during class change at Discovery Middle School two years ago.

"Having a panic attack. This is my first time to lay eyes on him. When I looked at him, he looked cold. Had to be to kill Todd - shoot him in the back of the head, premeditated," said Hurst. "Hopefully justice will be served. He will serve his time in prison. No matter what age - if murderer 10 or 80, you will be punished for what you did."

The mother was not in court because she couldn't get off work. Todd Brown's father did not want to speak on camera but was present for the hearing.

"He should have never been out of jail, should have been incarcerated. Seems like the justice system gave him a license to run," said John Lavender, Todd Brown's uncle.

Memon will remain in jail without bond.

Brown's family says it's been two long years since Todd's death, and waiting on a trial only makes the hurt stronger.

"Every time I go to the cemetery, I have to look at his grave and think his killer is walking around with the luxury of not being in jail. That's hard," said Lavender.

Todd Brown's family has filed a civil lawsuit, naming memon's parents, along with the Madison Board of Education and superintendent Dee Fowler.

Memon's parents have filed for a motion for a stay in the civil suit. The hearing is set for tomorrow at 1:30 p.m.
