Currently, you cannot delete a submission from an assignment in Canvas. What you can do is open the assignment back up just for that student and have them re-submit. 

There are a couple of feature requests that address this issue and might provide more insight:

Good evening, @NicoleSimmons ...

Unfortunately, I don't think deleting a student's work that was submitted to the wrong assignment is possible.  Students can now re-submit the assignment, but I assume that is not what you are asking about.  How do I limit submission attempts for an assignme... - Instructure Community

The Feature Idea that you will want to follow is: Move or Delete Incorrectly Submitted Assignments - Instructure Community.  Feel free to "rate" that Feature Idea and also leave a comment so that Instructure engineers know why something like this would be important to you within Canvas.

Sorry that I don't have better news for you at this time, but I hope this has helped to answer your question.
