ACCOMAC, Va. (AP) -- A woman convicted of setting two fires on the Eastern Shore will spend more than 10 years in prison.

Media outlets report that 41-year-old Tonya Bundick was sentenced Thursday in Accomack County Circuit Court.

Judge Glen A. Tyler sentenced Bundy to two concurrent seven-year terms on arson and conspiracy charges related to a fire in April 2013 in Melfa. Bundick also received a three-and-half-year sentence and must pay $10,000 in fines for setting a fire in March 2013 in Accomack County.

Bundick faces more than 60 additional arson counts stemming from a string of fires set in 2012 and 2013. A judge ruled in April that she can have separate trials on each charge.

Co-defendant Charles R. Smith is awaiting sentencing on arson and conspiracy charges.
