Thirty-eight-year-old Charles R. Smith III and 40-year-old Tonya S. Bundick are scheduled to face arson charges in Accomack County on Monday. Each is charged with one count of arson and one count of conspiracy to commit arson in connection with an early April fire at an abandoned structure in Melfa.
