Is my child being abused?

I have a custody agreement with my ex. He is now re-married.

When we were together, he was abusive. He told me to abort our child and blame it on my bad health, kicked and punched me so I left.

Our child is now 10 and he has her part-time. This weekend, she came home and told me they were fighting and that "dad threw a cookie sheet at _____(his wife)". She told me also that they fight all the time and they stop when she walks into the room and maybe she should go over more often so they stop fighting.

She also told me weeks ago, when the song "little toy guns" was on by Carrie Underwood that it was just like dad and her stepmom screaming all the time.

The only other thing is that she mentioned being in the car trapped and scared because they were yelling so hard and dad was slamming on the brakes to get stepmom to be scared. She said she wanted to jump out of the car.

She tells me she's not supposed to tell these things. What can I do? She is 10, old enough to testify, help?
