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.
Investigators have said the Parksley couple is response for most of the arsons on the Eastern Shore since last fall. They were arrested April 2 following a fire at an abandoned structure in Melfa.
