I get that the criteria is limited to her abuse of discretion and/or a conflict of interest, but there should be criteria where a case is so complex that local skills and resources just can’t do it justice.  The limited criteria leaves rural jurisdictions in some very difficult if not impossible positions.

Clearly the APD was in over its head in controlling the scene of the crime and properly investigating.  I haven’t seen any evidence that it’s change.
