Tiahleigh's Foster Father To Plead Guilty To Her Murder

The foster father of Logan schoolgirl Tiahleigh Palmer is set to plead guilty to her murder.

Lawyers for Rick Thorburn indicated during a review of the case in Brisbane's Supreme Court on Monday he will admit to killing the 12-year-old.

He has yet to enter a formal plea on the charges of murder and interfering with a corpse, but a lawyer for Mr Thorburn reportedly confirmed outside court he would plead guilty.

The matter has been scheduled for sentencing on May 25.
