How to Delete a LineShape Control

The code below spawns a new lineshape when a user right-clicks and selects "connect" from a parent control's contextmenustrip.   Is there a way to add to the newly formed lineshape a right-click contextmenustrip with a "Delete" option to allow a user to delete a line that's not wanted?
  Private Sub ctmsconnect_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles ctmsconnect.Click
        ' Private Sub ctms_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles boxCtms1.Click
        mLineWidth = 1

        Dim myItem As ToolStripMenuItem = CType(sender, ToolStripMenuItem)
        Dim cms As ContextMenuStrip = CType(myItem.Owner, ContextMenuStrip)
        'MessageBox.Show(boxCtms1.SourceControl.Name)
        Dim x As Integer = cms.SourceControl.Right - 2
        Dim y As Integer = cms.SourceControl.Top + (cms.SourceControl.Height / 2 - 12)
        Dim LS As New LineShape
        NumLineShapes += 1
        LS.Name = "LineShape" & NumLineShapes
        LS.BorderColor = Color.Black
        LS.BorderWidth = 2
        LS.Cursor = Cursors.Hand

        ' set starting and ending coordinates for the line
        LS.StartPoint = New Point(x, y)
        LS.EndPoint = New Point(x + 80, y - 5)
        'sLSTemp.StartPoint = New System.Drawing.Point(siSCCount * 20, 60 + siSCCount * 60)
        'sLSTemp.EndPoint = New System.Drawing.Point(100 + siSCCount * 20, 110 + siSCCount * 60)

        ' set new LineShape to top of z-order
        LS.BringToFront()
        LS.BringToFront()

        ' connect ContextMenuStrip to LineShape
        'LS.ContextMenuStrip = mLsCtm1
        ' add LineShape to ShapeContainer
        'myLS.Parent = mySC
        '  'Me.Controls.Add(mySC)

        numconnectedlineendpoints += 1
        Dim myValues As New List(Of String)
        myValues.Add(cms.SourceControl.Name)
        DropLineOriginalObjectName = cms.SourceControl.Name
        OrigDropControl = cms.SourceControl
        myValues.Add(LS.Name)
        'myValues.Add(mySC.Name)
        myValues.Add("linestart")
        dicGUIControls.Add(numconnectedlineendpoints, myValues)
       
        Lines.Add(LS)
        SC.Shapes.Add(LS)
        Me.Refresh()
        ' add handlers

    End Sub
