Move to NJ! I don't have an extra room, but I'd build one for you!

HighMike is right, document everything. Keep all her crazy letters, write down the dates and conversations, and even take photos of all your stuff and keep them somewhere out of the house. It might seem extreme, but better safe than sorry.

Does she have a previous relationship with the landlord? I'd talk to him, I know I'd want to know what was happening in my home. Tell him what you've discovered, and that you're fearful it could escalate to violence or extreme property damage, and ask how he wants to proceed.

As a tenant, you do have the right to live in a home where you don't fear for your safety. I don't know the laws in MI, but I will look them up for you and see what I find. At the very least I'd expect him to let you out of your lease free of any penalties, including withholding your damage deposit, but again, I'd look that up.

It might be in your best interest to leave any way, talk to someone in your county courthouse in the landlord-tenant divison. They're a huge resource for information and guidance.

If all else fails, the ladies of SNA will make a trip out there and cut the bitch! ilu and I'm so sorry you're in this situation...seriously, let me know if I can be of any help at all.
No apologies ever need be made. I know you better than you fake it.
