A woman had to force her way into her mother's home with the help of cops after a lengthy legal battle to get a notorious squatter out of the residence. Jan Breslauer's parents lived in the home for 60 years. Then patriarch Alan Breslauer became ill. His wife, Fran, hired a live-in housekeeper to help out with chores around the house. Alan died last January, but the housekeeper, 71-year-old Cheryl Sherell, refused to leave. Sherrell claimed she was a legal tenant in the house.
