I am sorry to hear about this situation.
If your name is ***** ***** the title of the home, then you do not own it and have no interest in it regardless of your prior engagement with the fiancee or your help with the property over that time. It also does not matter as to the emotional abuse claims, I am afraid, or whether or not someone did something illegal in the apartment.
What you and your daughter are considered is called "tenants at sufferance." That is, staying at the pleasure of the landlord, and that is her.
A tenant at sufferance has few rights, but one of these rights is to be evicted. So in other words, one cannot simply physically kick them out of the home. You must be evicted like a tenant who has not paid rent.
Under Iowa Code, section 562.4, a tenant at sufferance seems to receive the same rights as a "tenant at will" (a closely related definition) meaning that they can demand a 30 days notice in writing before eviction.
If she claims that she has already given you a 30 days notice and it has been 30 days, and tries to file for an eviction, someone in your situation can tell the Judge at the hearing that it has NOT been 30 days and one only received notice 36 hours ago. The Court - if it believes you - will likely disallow the eviction and ask her to refile after 30 days has passed since the written notice.
