Can my ex-roommate sue me for lost rent and deposit?

Question Details: My ex-roommate is suing me for her rent from when she moved out until termination of the lease (11 days total) as well as lost deposit due to early lease termination. I was leaving due to feeling unsafe living with her, and she insisted on leaving as well. When our landlord was reluctant to terminate before finding new tenants, I agreed through email to stay at our house and take over the rent if she moved out. Our landlord then told us that interested new tenants wanted to move in ASAP, so I moved out as well. This fell through, so our landlord agreed to terminate our lease early.
