Is there an asterisk CLI command, to kill or end a call?  The only way I know of, is to restart asterisk, and that just seems to be a little much.  Thanks

Try using SoftHangup.  It can end a call or end all calls to a device.  You need the channel information to pass.  

Its a basic command, heres some references,

From the CLI, you can type "soft hangup " if you hit TAB, it will show you the list of SIP channels you can hangup.

kode, if you type the partial name of the sip channel (SIP/1000) and hit tab it will "autocomplete" it for you as well..
