Smith Bench Trial Scheduled Thursday

Updated:

ACCOMAC, Va.– The bench trial for accused serial arsonist Charles R. Smith III is Thursday, Oct. 31 in Accomack County.

Smith faces 67 counts of arson and one count of conspiracy to commit arson. His trial date was set to begin in December, but has been moved up.

Smith and his fiance, 39-year-old Tonya Bundick, are accused of setting fire to a string of structures along Virginia's Eastern Shore.

Police say the Parksley couple is responsible for the majority of the 77 arsons that happened last fall. Both were arrested April 2, 2013 following a fire at an abandoned structure in Melfa.

No date has been set for Bundick's trial.
