ACCOMACK COUNTY, Va. – The woman charged in connection with dozens of the Eastern Shore arsons that terrified a rural part of Virginia is out of jail.
Tonya Bundick was granted bond early Monday afternoon. She has been locked up since spring, given a $30,000 bond last month, and a professional bondsman posted for her today.
Bundick and Charles Smith were arrested in April shortly after a fire was set on airport drive in Melfa.
Firefighters estimate that they spent almost 4,000 hours fighting fires set by the couple.
Bundick’s jury trial is set for November 6 and Smith faces a bench trial that starts Dec. 16.
