Log in as the User you want to keep.
Launch Terminal.app in /Applications/Utilities.
At the prompt carefully type this command... every space, dot & count!
sudo dscl . delete "/Users/Account Name"
Replace Account Name with the unwanted user's Account Name.

I did manage to get rid of it without going through terminal, but it was a real pain and I'm not quite sure how it worked. I kept changing the user names (the problem I think was that my "old" account was my full name and the new one just my first one - and both were linked to my apple ID.
By chaging the names a couple of times by logging in and out of each account I was able to change the "old" account to something else and rename the "new" one with my full name. At that point the delete FINALLY worked.

Thanks. This worked. I think the problem I created was when I setup icloud with the account I wanted to delete and both accounts were then associated with the same icloud account. Next time I won't do that.
