ACCOMACK COUNTY, Va.- A judge has denied a request for bail for the second of two people arrested in connection with a string of arson fires that occurred in Accomack County.
Tonya Bundick appeared in court Wednesday morning where the judge ruled she will remain behind bars while awaiting trial on Jan. 13. The judge also denied Bundick's second request for a change of venue for the trial, which has already been moved to Virginia Beach.
The judge, however, did not make a decision on a defense request to limit the use of evidence in Bundick's case. A final decision on that will not come until early January.
Bundick, of Parksley, is facing 62 counts in connection with a spree of arson fires that occurred throughout Accomack County between November 2012 and early April of this year.
Bundick's fiance, Charles R. Smith III, also of Parksley, pleaded guilty last month to 67 counts of arson in connection with the string of fires. He now awaits a sentencing date.
