You can't delete people but you can unlink them via the edit page where you can remove relationships.

Are you sure that the person doesn't belong? Was a source citation given to document that person? Do you have evidence there is a mistake? You would want to make sure the addition was truly. a mistake before unlinking. Another thing to keep in mind is that on WikiTree there is only one tree and it is "our" collective genealogy. If nothing else, send a PM to the person who made the addition to find out why the person was added.

The person cannot be deleted but can be removed from your family. Click on one of the parents and go to the edit page. At the bottom of the list of children you will see the "add, remove child", choose a child and follow the prompts to remove that child; then do the same for the other parent.

You can also begin with the child, go to edit and remove father and then remove mother.

I hope this helps.
