The 13-year-old hasn't been seen since she disappeared from her Glenroy home in February 1992.

Camilleri's lawyer has told a number of court hearings her client admitted the murder but not in the circumstances police alleged.

Camilleri is already serving life without parole for repeatedly raping then murdering Bega schoolgirls Lauren Barry and Nichole Collins in October 1997 in a crime the Court of Appeal described as undoubtedly one of the worst examples of murder to be found in this state.

Pre-sentence submissions will be heard next year.
