The man accused of Tiahleigh Palmer's murder is expected to be moved to prison either today or sometime over the weekend.
Rick Thorburn will be taken to the Brisbane Correctional Centre at Wacol after doctors woke him from an induced coma yesterday.
The decision to sedate the 56-year-old was taken after he collapsed shortly after his arrest on Wednesday.
The cause of his collapse is now the subject of a police investigation with speculation rife that he took pills while in custody, bringing on his chest pains.
Once hospital staff are satisfied Thorburn is well enough to be discharged, he is expected to be moved to the Wacol prison, where is 19-year-old son, Trent is being held.
Police allege that his father murdered Tiahleigh to protect him after it was discovered the two had had sex.
Trent, who is facing charges of incest, perverting the course of justice and perjury, was remanded in custody at Wacol after a court denied him bail on Wednesday.
Tiahleigh's foster mother Julene and the family's older son Joshua, 20, have been charged with perjury and perverting the course of justice.
They are set to face court on October 10.
Trent Thorburn's next court date is on November 9.
Rick Thorburn's matter will next be mentioned on December 21.
