Removing a roommate under FL landlord tenant laws if no lease or sub lease exists

Asked over 5 years ago - Edgewater, FL

A couple verbally allowed their friend to move into their house and "rent" a room. The friend's girlfriend moved in with him. They were to split all utility and cable bills. Now the guy is in jail and the girlfriend has not paid anything. The couple want her out of their house. How do they do this?
