do a:
ps -ef
you will see a couple lines saying something like sshd@.....
and another line(dont remember how it goes exactly).
anyways get the PID no from that and do kill -9 (pid no.).
you will probably have to do this is root since the connection is being used by root.
altrenatively you could just restart the ssh deamon.
