MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Defense attorneys have just filed a motion for a continuance in Hammad Memon's case.

Memon is charged with the murder of classmate Todd Brown in 2010.

Police say he tried to leave the U.S. last month with a passport issued by the Pakistani Embassy.

This continuance is based on that attempt to flee.

The order states that defense council has spent a considerable amount of time with Memon since his return to North Alabama.

Attorney Bruce Gardner says he no longer believes Memon is competent to stand trial.

Gardner goes on to say that Memon's mental state has gone even further downhill since he was booked back into the Metro Jail without bond.

Defense attorneys now plan to hire their own legal experts.

Memon's trial is set for June 18th. Memon's attorneys want 120 more days to prepare.
