Can't delete credit

Our unit publicist credit points to the wrong IMDB page and for some reason I cannot correct or delete it. I submitted a new credit linking to the correct page, but am unable to delete the old one. 
The page is: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9261290/

And this is the credit that needs to be deleted (unit publicist): https://www.imdb.com/name/nm10404382/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cr121

Tess,

The title you provided lists 2 unit publicists: Jess Carrera and Jessica Carrera. Which of the two names is correct and which should be deleted?

Tess,

Since the incorrect name page (Jess) has the four episodes for that title and is a duplicate of the correct name page (Jessica), submit a name merge, which will combine the filmography and remove the incorrect name page from the database.

Read the instructions on the IMDb Help Desk page link below.

How can I combine two IMDb filmography pages?

In this case, go to the incorrect name page (Jess) and submit the Name Correction or Merge. When you get to the form, type the name this way.

Carrera, Jessica

(Please reconfirm the last name is spelled Carrera.)

Uncheck the box to the left of the following statement.

Preserve previous name on existing credits. i.e. '(as Jess Carrera)'

In the Explanation Box, write a brief statement why the name page is being merged.

(Duplicate entry. Correcting the first name from Jess to Jessica.)

You can also add the URL of this discussion page.

Acknowledge the yellow warning messages by clicking the checkbox to the left of the following statements.

Warning understood, go ahead anyway.

The page should now be in green and ready to be submitted. Processing may take 2-3 days to complete.

I hope this helps. Thanks for the update.

Hi Tess,

Thanks for reaching out about this! I've submitted this correction on your behalf and it should update online within 24 hours. If you run into this issue in the future, you can follow the steps GMJ has outlined above to merge the names yourself. 

Thanks!
