Open Activity Monitor and see if there is anything still running relevant to the deleted apps and quit the process(es) from there or:
Start up in Safe Mode and see if you can empty the trash then.
What is Safe Boot, Safe Mode
Safe Boot takes longer than normal startup.

Have you tried to reboot your machine ? I have had similar situations in the past and a reboot did the trick ( after the reboot empty the trash ) If that does not work check out this link http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/trash.html
