The foster father of Tiahleigh Palmer will plead guilty to murder, his lawyers have told the Brisbane Supreme Court.
Tiahleigh's body was found in October 2015 on the banks of a river on the Gold Coast.
Rick Thorburn was committed to stand trial for the murder in July 2017.
His lawyer Jason Jacobson has told the court today that the pre-trial hearing slated for next month should be dismissed. His client has wished for a date to be sentenced.
Tiahleigh was missing for six days before her body was found.
Her death has sparked a major review of child safety systems and protocol for children who go missing from out-of-home care.
Mr Thorburn was charged in September 2016.
