How terrible for her!  Your grandmother may need to legally evict our brother in order to be able to get a Marshll to execute a dispossess warrant and get him out.  First, you need to establish his relation ship to your grndmother.  Not in a relative sense but in a landlord tenant sense of things.  Was he a tenant?  A guest who became a squatter when asked to leave?  Did he pay rent?  Did he work in exchange for housing?  You really need to seek legal help in your area with this.  It is important to do this right the first time around.  Good luck.
