Mr Thorburn will appear at Beenleigh Magistrates Court on July 28.

It comes two weeks after he spoke during a two-day coronial inquest into Tiahleigh’s death in 2015.

On November 5, 2015, three fishermen found Tiahleigh’s mostly naked and partially submerged body on the banks of the Pimpama River in the Gold Coast hinterland.

Mr Thorburn was convicted of four charges, including incest after having sex with his 12-year-old foster sister. His father, Rick Thorburn, then killed Tiahleigh for fear she might have been pregnant.
