This isn't like War of the Roses, more akin to Fatal Attraction

Finally moving to my new house Friday! This is coinciding with a nasty breakup with a very unreasonable woman. She's unstable and deploying some very low, tacky, petty moves. We share an apartment that's going away at the end of the month and I need some best practices to help this deployment.

Best practices with a breakup when you share an apartment? Mr. the Woods is in a sticky situation.
I've been in a rental for half-a-decade which is under my name, although we put the name of my girlfriend on the lease in Summer 2011. She pays 1/4 of the monthly rent via a county assistance program which is sent directly to my property management company. I pay for every utility in this rental. Now we're breaking up.
She's gone completely off the rails and I need to get her, myself, my 3 cats and my possessions out of the rental. She has no money to assume the full rent payment or pay the deposit. January will be my final month in the rental, then the place goes back to the property management company. She's not going to sign a 30 Day Pay Rent or Quit form in her current vindictive state.
I'll be under a my roof this weekend and will be hiring professional movers next week for the heavy stuff. What are my options if she refuses to leave at the end of the month and decides to continue trying to occupy the rental? She's doing such downright frightening moves that I maintain a 5-foot radius away from her and have moved my pets and big-money possessions into my locked bedroom. Thank you.
