If you gave him notice as you state then you can go file forcible entry and detanier.At the hearing you are given orders of eviction and then the sheriff/constable come and evict him.Thats the next step here.

Self help with forms to do that

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
