Judge Denies Bond For Woman In Va. Arson Case

Posted: Updated:

ACCOMACK CO., Va. - Accomack County General District Court Judge Gordon Vincent denied bond for 40-year-old Tonya S. Bundick on Wednesday.

Bundick and 38-year-old Charles Smith stand accused of setting a majority of the 77 arsons that plagued the area since November 12, 2012. Last week, Charles Smith was denied bond. They were arrested on April 2 after allegedly setting an abandoned structure on fire in Melfa. Each is charged with one count of arson and one count of conspiracy to commit arson.

When Bundick walked out of court, she was approached by a number of reporters, but she kept her head low, made no eye contact and didn't say a word until a reporter made a comment regarding her children. She lashed out with some choice words before walking back into the Accomack County Jail.

Bundick's attorney Shannon Dunham declined to comment, but she did say she plans to appeal to the circuit court. The defense has also filed a motion for psychiatric evaluation.

Both Bundick and Smith are set to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on May 6th.
