Hi Prentiss,

Do one thing modify the test class with like only blank method like below .
 
@isTest
public class CloneListUtil{
  static testMethod void testCloneListControllerOne(){
  
  }
}

And deploy the code to controller and then delete ,
Do you want to delete only the test class or CLoneListController as well .

Hi Prentiss

Check this below article.Hope it helps you.

How to Disable or Delete an Apex Class or Trigger from a Production Org
Knowledge Article Number: 000006188 


Description- An Apex class or trigger must be removed from a production instance if it is blocking a deployment or is no longer needed.
- Apex code may not be modified directly within a Production org, so it requires a couple of steps using Developer tools.
- This article gives instructions using the Force.com IDE
- This is the only way an Administrator or Developer can disable or remove Apex in a Production org.


Resolution- Force.com IDE should be installed and working.
- Connect to the Sandbox Instance using the IDE and find the class or trigger that you want to delete.
- Open the matching .xml file change the Status XML tag from "Active" to "Deleted" if you want to remove the trigger or class, or to "Inactive" if you want to disable the trigger.
- Apex class Status can only be changed to "Active" or "Deleted", not "Inactive".
- Save the file.
- Select the two files (Code and XML) using Ctrl-click, then right click on one of them. Select Force.com > Deploy to server.
- Provide your credentials for the production org and follow the steps.

Hi Prentiss ,

If you want to delete Apex class from production .You need to pull the apex classes to eclipse . Select the metadata XML fiel related to the class .
You will get the file like below .
 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ApexClass xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata">
    <apiVersion>27.0</apiVersion>
    <!--<status>Active</status> --> Relace this line with below line or chnage Active to Deleted 
    <status>Deleted</status>
</ApexClass>
After this save the class it will automatically delete the class from production .

Thanks
Manoj

Hi Prentiss

Just copy and paste code in Sandbox and then in IDE change status to Deleted from Active.

It will delete the class from production.
