Firstly, try this:

Using Terminal, type

PHP:
rm -rf ~/.Trash

Press Return to exectute

This command deletes the Trash Folder but you'll need to recreate it by typing:

PHP:
mkdir ~/.Trash

Press Return to exectute

Then log out/in to see if it worked.

I wonder if starting up in Safe Mode (hold down Shift when you hear the startup chime) would allow you to delete said file that's in the Trash. It's possible.
