Face of terror: Under the sweetness of Diane Stretton's homely visage is a chronic abuser of the legal system and her latest victims are the Bracamonte family from whose house she's refused to leave despite being fired from her job as a live-in nanny barely a month when she was hired.

A California family is exasperated by their live-in nanny who stopped working but refuses to leave their house even after she had been fired.

Marcella Bracamonte says she and her husband, Ralph, hired 64-year-old Diane Stretton in early March to do chores and watch over their children, ages 11, 4 and 1, in exchange for room and board in their home in Upland, in the Los Angeles area.

About three weeks later, however, Stretton stopped working, saying she has a chronic pulmonary disease, and ignored repeated requests to leave the house, Bracamonte said. She added that the woman also threatened to sue the family for wrongful termination and abuse of the elderly.
