Accomack County Arsonist Pleads Guilty

Posted: Updated:

ACCOMACK CO., Va. - One of two people accused in the case of the Accomack County fires, has pleaded guilty. On Thursday morning, in an Accomack County courtroom, Charles Smith pleaded guilty to 68 counts of arson.

Smith was accused of setting a majority of the 77 fires in a nearly four-month long string of arsons in Accomack County.

He now faces 584 years behind bars. No date has been set for his sentencing.

Tonya Bundick, Smith's fiance at the time of the fires, is charged with one count of arson, and one count of conspiracy to arson. Bundick is out on bond, pending her upcoming trial. After her lawyer was removed from Bundick's case by a judge earlier this month, she has been appointed a new lawyer. However, Bundick's trial date may not be set for a few weeks.

WMDT's Kody Leibowitz will have more on this story tonight at 6 PM. For WMDT's continuing coverage of the Accomack Arsons, click here.
