Stepmother's rights towards father's property

My father did second marriage after my mother died 9 years back and the other woman who came always mentally harassed my father and us i.e my elder sister and me . She used to fight with my father a lot and thereafter used to leave for his home.
Last year my father died because of heart attack. We had two houses, both were in his name. Only after he died one house was transferred in my name legally signed by my sister and step mother. The other house is in my fathers name only. But now my step mother is harassing me mentally saying that I'll take you to court if you won't name me in the other house. Her behavior is like this only from past and because of which me and my sister started living away from home. My sister is unmarried and we are now alone. We live in different place but whenever we go home she starts fighting with us. She is getting PF, gratuity and pension too. I haven't said anything to leave this house. All my neighbors know his reality about how she is.
Can he claim her right in the house which she herself signed and is there anything we can do to safeguard ourselves if she plans to go court in near future. I have her voice recorded when she was yelling at me in phone 2-3 times?
