The Whispering Pines Motel was one of many targets razed by the accused serial arsonists.

Two people accused of setting a string of fires on Virginia's Eastern Shore have been formally indicted.

Charles Smith III, 40, faces 67 arson counts and one conspiracy count. Tonya Bundick, 38, is charged with one arson count and one conspiracy count.

Those indictments from a grand jury were issued yesterday, says Accomack County Commonwealth's Attorney Gary Agar.

Investigators have said the couple is responsible for most of the 77 arsons that have occurred on the Eastern Shore since last fall. They were arrested April 2 of this year while Bundick was driving a minivan shortly after police said they set a fire in Melfa.
