The man convicted of beating his girlfriend’s husband to death with a hammer in 2007 at Ravenswood Riverfront Park is asking for a new trial.


The man convicted of beating his girlfriend’s husband to death with a hammer in 2007 at Ravenswood Riverfront Park will appear Monday morning in Jackson County Circuit Court for a hearing on his motion for a new trial.

Attorneys for Larry Samuel White, 33, previously filed a motion with Circuit Court Judge Thomas C. Evans, III, seeking a new trial on the basis that the state failed to disclose material to the defense prior to White's murder trial last year. 

White was convicted in December 2008 of first-degree murder and conspiracy for conspiring with Roseann Osborne to murder her husband, Mohamed Mahrous, at Riverfront Park in Ravenswood on the night of September 17, 2007. 

On Thursday, June 11, White appeared in Jackson County Circuit Court for a hearing on the new trial motion. 

After hearing arguments from White’s attorney, Matthew Clark, as well as initial testimony regarding the matter, Evans decided to continue proceedings on the matter. 

White will reappear in Circuit Court on Monday, July 27, at 9:00 a.m. for a further hearing on the matter.
