Click on the split you don't want on this transaction.  Then click on
the DELETE icon on the top menu.  When you hover over it, it should say
"delete split".  If it says "Delete transaction" then you didn't put the
focus on the split.  Go back and click on the split and hover over the
DELETE to verify it now says "Delete split".

Alternatively, you can backspace all fields in the split and it should
disappear.  I haven't tried highlighting field by field and hitting the
delete key -- but that should also clean out the split field by field
until nothing is left of that split.
