Re-potty training

Question:

hi. i have a 1 1/2 year old Jack russell/beagle mix. Josie is a great dog and we love her. The problem is she's started urinating and pooping in the house again -- but only in one room. This usually happens overnight. When we first got her, we crate trained her and she did really well. Once she turned one, we stop crating her forcefully. She definitely knows the crate is her spot -- many nights she sleeps a couple hours there and then, a couple hours with us in bed. We moved into a new house a few months ago -- the old owners had a dog also -- so the first two times she did this -- I thought she was just marking here territory -- but now this is becoming a habit. Can you tell me how to re-house break her? We've got a little lax on the feeding schedule so I'm planing on re-starting that tonight....but should I start crating her again too? And should I only take her to go out on the lease or let her run outside by herself? HELP, please!
