In SQL how do I delete records from two tables?

I have the attached table structure within my sql server 2005 database. I have written the attached stored procedure hoping it would allow me to delete records within my ApplicantInterviews table but I get an error on my foreign key value constraint (InterviewID) due to items being under this key. How can I alter my stored procedure to delete the interview in my ApplicantInterviews table aswell as the interviewers that come under that interview (InterviewID) in my ApplicantInterviewInterviewers table??

Thanks.
ALTER PROCEDURE [Applicant].[proc_DeleteApplicantInterview]
	
	@InterviewID int,
	@InterviewInterviewerID int
	
AS
	DELETE FROM Applicant.ApplicantInterviews
	WHERE InterviewID = @InterviewID
	
RETURN

That worked! Thanks.

I would like to maintain a history but I'm hoping my users will only use the delete if they had entered incorrect data.
