Trial for father of school shooter to begin as scheduled

Posted: Updated:
HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The motion to delay the trial for the father of the Discovery Middle School shooter has been denied.

A judge ruled Friday the trial for Dr. Iqbal Memon will begin Monday as previously scheduled.

Dr. Memon is charged with hindering prosecution. He's accused of trying to help his son, Hammad, get out of the country to avoid his murder trial.  

In an unrelated case, Dr. Memon also faces theft charges. Investigators say he stole more than $7,000 from the Alabama Medicaid Agency.

That trial is set for next month.
