ACCOMACK COUNTY, Va. — The woman charged in connection with the worst arson spree in Virginia history was sentenced Thursday morning.

WTKR reports Tonya Bundick will serve to 10.5 years in prison for two of the more than 60 fires investigators say she helped start on the Eastern Shore in the fall of 2012.

Bundick was sentenced to 3.5 years for a July conviction and seven years for arson and conspiracy.

A judge has ruled Bundick, who still faces 60 other counts of arson, could face separate trials for each one.

Prosecutors said Bundick and her former fiancé Charlie Smith set the fires.

Smith has already admitted to being involved in 68 of them, and he is currently in prison.
