I have a Roommate that refuses to bath. The stench is so bad it stinks after the person leaves the room.
There is really no proper answer to this. It's a fact by fact situation. You can try to call the department of health or housing and get an inspector to write you a report regarding the sanitation of this person: and use that as a bases to evict the person. It would be a hard road.
A better option would be to move out.

The first question is whether the roommate is your co-tenant or your subtenant. If he is a co-tenant, you would not have legal standing to terminate his co-tenancy - only the owner could do that.
If he is a co-tenant, you still might have remedies, including injunctive relief under the law of nuisance.
Consult a local landlord-tenant attorney for help.
