VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WBOC/AP)- A woman charged in an Eastern Shore of Virginia arson spree is scheduled to appear in court for her second trial.

A judge ruled in April that Tonya S. Bundick, of Parksley, can have separate trials on each of 62 arson charges.

The trial scheduled to begin Monday involves a fire set March 3, 2013, in Accomack County. The trial was moved to Virginia Beach Circuit Court because of difficulty in finding impartial jurors in Accomack County.

Bundick entered an Alford plea to arson and conspiracy on the second day of her first trial in January. Those charges stemmed from an April 2013 fire in Melfa.

Bundick's fiancé and co-defendant Charles R. Smith, who was accused of setting a majority of the 77 fires during the four-month arson spree, pleaded guilty in October 2013 to 67 counts of arson and one count of conspiracy to commit arson. A sentencing date also has not yet been set for him.
