Tiahleigh's Foster Father Committed To Stand Trial For Murder

Tiahleigh Palmer's foster father Rick Thorburn has been committed to stand trial for the Brisbane schoolgirl's murder.

The 57-year-old is accused of murdering 12-year-old Tiahleigh, whose decomposing body was discovered on the banks of a northern Gold Coast river six days after she went missing in October 2015. 

Thornburn successfully applied for a registry committal application at the Beenleigh Magistrates Court today on the murder charge, as well as one count of misconduct with corpse by interfering.
