PID Kill Script or command ? Webmin

Hello, I am trying to find a way to script a command that would kill a specific PID that can be ran in Webmin.

I am running a game server on Fedora Core 4 where other users that have access to Webmin. I am trying to provide a script or command that will locate a PID ran by a specific UID and kill that particular process. THe problem I have found is that when I start the process the PID always changes so somehow I need to kill based on UID or process name.

I basically run the process in a screen with a specific user. I am not sure what other information is needed for people to help me but I hope someone can provide some feedback.
