how to kill process without rebooting


Hi minds

[root@arya root]# ps -x | grep mt
22879 ? D 0:00 mt -f /dev/st0 erase
24529 pts/2 S 0:00 grep mt

[root@arya root]# killall -KILL 22879
[root@arya root]# kill 22879

I tried to kill "mt" process but it does not kill anymore when i put
"ps -x | grep mt" it shows below

[root@arya root]# ps -x | grep mt
22879 ? D 0:00 mt -f /dev/st0 erase
24529 pts/2 S 0:00 grep mt

Any one tell me how to kill this process without rebooting.
