Go into the Computer Management Admin tool, Local Users and Groups, and Delete the account under users.  MAKE SURE you have another account with admin rights.

OH, you're running HOME (Windows 8, not Windows 8 Pro).  Sorry, I forgot, Windows 8 (like Windows 7 Home) doesn't offer that area.  Sorry, I don't have any home systems to test and check what the procedure might be.  If I can I'll set one up (been meaning to), but if not, hopefully someone else can chime in).

There's still the command line.
Click the start button, type cmd and cmd.exe will be found. Rightclick it and select "run as administrator". Now a command line shows. The first command is
net user
it will show you all local users.
If you need to delete user "willy", you would use the command
net user /delete willy
