Here are the options :

1.  Find the unix username, specific unix process(pid) for the oracle connection (ps -ef), kill the session with kill -9 <pid>

2.  Login as DBA/svrmgr, query the v$session view
    where username = <DB user_name>.  Get the values for sid and
    serial# columns, issue the command
    alter system kill session 'sid, serial#' ;

Ensure the process size is manageable to fit within the available rollback segments.
