ACCOMACK COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – A woman accused in a slew of Eastern Shore arson cases went off on a reporter outside the Accomack County General District Court on Wednesday.

Tonya Bundick was charged with arson and conspiracy to commit arson after Virginia State Police said she and her fiancée, Charles Smith, set most of the 77 fires set in Accomack County between November and March.

Bond was denied bond after

Prosecutors argued Bundick is a risk, given the magnitude of fires state police say she and her fiancée ignited. As a result, a judge denied bond. Bundick was also dealt two traffic violations before the bond request.

Smith was also denied bond during a hearing last week.

Bundick kept relatively quiet on her way back to jail until one reporter asked a question.

“Just *expletive* you. Oh *expletive* you and your DUI case, what they *expletive* about that dude?” she yelled.
