18 year old left home

My 18 year old left home. She went to live with my mother. She says she hates her father and that she is doing this for me. I grew up in a terribly abusive home. My mother was very abusive, my father an alcoholic. My mother recently confessed to me that she poisoned my father which caused his death. Now my daughter lives there. She will not listen to reason and barely speaks to me and only via text. She was always so smart, straight A student. I am so worried about her being with my mother. My mother is a very good actor and now lets my daughter run the streets with no rules or responsibility. I cannot prove that she poisoned my father because I did not know she did this until he had been dead 7 years. I am not dealing with this very well at all. I really don't think I can, I just want out of this world all together.

Ok, well, your adult daughter has made a choice to leave your home, and live somewhere else. This was going to happen sooner or later, regardless of where she went.
Her grandmother can ask that she observe some simple conventions in her home, but that's up to her. In no way can her grandmother (or you) control this adult, nor should you be so set on trying to do so.
Perhaps counseling would be a good place to start.
