RICK Thorburn has been committed to stand trial over the murder of Logan schoolgirl Tiahleigh Palmer.

His lawyer Adam Guest confirmed Thorburn had a registry committal today at Beenleigh Magistrates Court and will face trial in the Brisbane Supreme Court on a future date.

Police allege Tiahleigh was murdered by her foster father, 57-year-old Thorburn, in October 2015.

Her decomposing body was discovered on the banks of a northern Gold Coast river six days after she went missing.
