Convicted Accomack Arsonist Will Not Get New Lawyer

Posted: Updated:

ACCOMAC, Va. (AP) - A woman accused of setting a series of fires along Virginia's Eastern Shore has been denied a request for a new court-appointed attorney.

A judge in Accomack County denied Tonya S. Bundick's request Thursday.

A jury last month convicted Bundick of setting a fire March 3, 2013, in Accomack County. In January, Bundick entered an Alford plea to arson and conspiracy stemming from an April 2013 fire in Melfa.

She'll be sentenced in both cases Sept. 4.

In April, a judge ruled Bundick can have separate trials on each of 62 arson charges.

Co-defendant Charles R. Smith has pleaded guilty to 67 arson counts and a conspiracy charge. He's awaiting sentencing.
