Bundick’s request for new attorney denied

ACCOMACK COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) – Tonya Bundick’s request for a new attorney was denied Thursday.

The convicted Eastern Shore arsonist wrote a letter from jail in July, asking to have her public defender removed. Thursday, the motion was denied for the two cases in which Bundick has been convicted.

She is scheduled to be sentenced in September. The pre-sentence report by her attorney has already been completed, and her request was denied.

Bundick has made it clear she does not want to represent herself, but would like a new attorney. In her letter sent to Accomack County Circuit Court, she wrote that the legal advice she has “been receiving is ineffective.”
