The best way to remove the remains of your freewheel is with a freewheel puller; either buy one or ask a friendly local bike shop to perform the extraction for you. You can also try using a bench vise at this point, particularly since you apparently do not plan to salvage the freewheel.
Is the crank cottered or cotterless? Cottered cranks require either skill and patience or expensive special tools, whereas cotterless are easier to deal with, provided that you invest in the proper tools.
