HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A new trial date has been set for Iqbal Memon, the father of Discovery Middle School shooter Hammad Memon.

A judge declared a mistrial in Memon's hindering prosecution case last week after the jury twice failed to come to a consensus in deliberations.

Memon is accused of trying to help his son escape the country to avoid his murder trial. Hammad Memon shot and killed fellow classmate, Todd Brown, at Discovery Middle School in 2010.

Memon's new trial is set for Sept. 8.
