Suspected Eastern Shore Arsonists Competent for Trial

May 17, 2013

Two people suspected in setting a string of fires on Virginia's Eastern Shore have been found competent to stand trial.

Psychological evaluations of Charles R. Smith II and Tonya Bundick found that both of them suffer from depression, but they are still fit to go to trial.

Police have said the couple is responsible for most of the 77 arsons on the Eastern Shore since last fall. They were arrested April 2.
