ACCOMAC, Va. (AP/WBOC)- The trial of a woman suspected of setting a string of fires on the Eastern Shore has been moved to Virginia Beach.
 
A judge granted 40-year-old Tonya Bundick's request for a change of venue on Tuesday. Her lawyer had cited media coverage of the case.
 
A trial date has not been set.
 
Bundick is charged with one count of arson and one count of conspiracy. Her fiance, 38-year-old Charles R. Smith III, faces 67 arson counts and one conspiracy count. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
