HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A Madison County judge met with prosecutors and the defense handling Hammad Memon's case Thursday afternoon. Everything is on track for a June 17 court date.

Memon is charged with the 2010 murder of Todd Brown. Brown was shot and killed during a class change at Discovery Middle School in Madison.

The judge is also extending the jury pool for this case due to pre-trial publicity. She said she wants to "fill her courtroom" with juror candidates. This case has received a lot of attention and the defense wants to make sure Hammad gets a fair trial.

On Thursday, the judge worked out a timeline with prosecutors and the defense.

They were given a number of deadlines leading up to the June 17 trial for disclosure of expert witnesses and other things of that nature.

One last status hearing will be held 10 days before the trial on June 7.

The trial itself has been allotted 10 days.

Defense attorney Bruce Gardner said he doesn't think it will take long to present the evidence, but selecting a jury could be more time-consuming.

"The judge is going to summons at least 100 juror candidates. I think it will take that many to find 12 people who can be fair and impartial in the case," Gardner said.

A judge revoked Hammad's bond after he was picked up last spring in Texas.

Investigators said Memon and his mother were in the process of leaving the country to avoid trial.

Hammad's mother Safia, and his father Iqbal Memon face charges of hindering prosecution.

Safia's trial is set for April 15, and Iqbal will go to trial August 5.
