OAKLAND, Calif. — The former lead police investigator into the slaying of Oakland Post Editor Chauncey Bailey has been accused of insubordination and compromising a police probe, and two of his superiors also face possible discipline for allegedly failing to supervise the Bailey case properly, law enforcement sources said Tuesday.

Sgt. Derwin Longmire, the 24-year Oakland police veteran who led the investigation of Bailey's slaying until last fall, could be suspended or fired if the department concludes he was guilty of misconduct.
