Without a sublease what legal recourse do we have for removing a tenant from the premises?

My roommate and I are the primary tenants on a month-to-month lease. We have a verbal month-to-month agreement with a girl who has not met the terms of our verbal agreement.

Why do you think that you do not have a sub-rental agreement?  As long as the sublease agreement does not violate your agreement with your landlord she is month to month tenant to you two as the landlord.  So you need to give her 30 days notice and evict.  Good luck.
