Rick Thorburn indicted for Tiahleigh Palmer's murder
Rick Thorburn has been indicted for the murder of his 12-year-old foster daughter Tiahleigh Palmer in October 2015.
Tiahleigh's body was found on the banks of the Pimpama River six days after she went missing while in the care of Thorburn and his family.
Thorburn was charged in September 2016 with murdering the Queensland schoolgirl and disposing of her body.
The 57-year-old was indicted on those two offences in the Brisbane Supreme Court on Wednesday and will remain in custody until the case returns to court on February 16.
The court heard a lengthy adjournment was needed for the case as the defence was addressing a number of "issues".
