Default Howling Issue, need help

Hi, I need some help with training our dog.

We rescued an English Coonhound about 6 weeks ago. She was about 2 years old when we got her. She's been pretty great, except this one thing.

We were crating her when we left the apartment and everything was great, until a week ago. My wife went away for the weekend and the dog was great, would stay in the crate 9 hours while I worked. Then, upon my wife's return, she got sick and stayed home all the time for a few weeks. We also, let Lady (the dog) start to sleep in our bed.

So, after those few weeks she was healthy and we both left the apartment at the same time, and when we came home she had escaped her crate and knocked over the garbage and ripped down all the coats. She's escaped the crate again, so we stopped using that.

Now when we leave her alone, she sometimes destroys things, sometimes not, but that isn't the biggest problem. The problem is she now howls, really loud, when we are away. Sometimes for hours straight. It's disrupting the neighbours and driving my wife and I crazy.

How do you stop a dog from howling when she is left alone? There has to be a solution, please.
