VIRGINIA BEACH, Va.- It is day two of the Tonya S. Bundick trial in Virginia Beach, and the key witness in the case is back on the witness stand.

Bundick, 41, of Parksley, faces one count of arson and one count of conspiracy to commit arson in connection with a string of arson fires that happened between November 2012 and April 2013.

Her former fiancé Charles Smith, who has already pleaded guilty to arson and other charges, returned to the stand on Tuesday morning. He was cross-examined by the defense, which is trying to prove that Smith is testifying against Bundick in an effort to get his sentence reduced. But Smith replied, "I want to do the right thing and I don't want to spend the rest of my life in the penitentiary."

Bundick faces more than 60 other arson charges in connection with the fire. A second trial will be held on those charges at a later date.
