"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use QueryDocumentDelete event for a database. Put there some @formula or LotusScript code which will check for the current user role and will allow or prohibit deletion.  However this is not a real security measure, just some fool-proofing interface.

Secure approach is to prohibit deletion for every users except Admin in ACL.  If you want to allow them to delete only some documents while being editors without deletion rights for others then you could use the following technique. On deletion just mark documents so they will disappear from the view. Set up  scheduled or new&modified documents agent under Admin rights to remove them from the database.
