You can also try searching all processes in activity monitor and killing tasks related to VoiceTrigger.

Power down the Mac, all the way off.
Reboot. Get logged into the finder.
NOW try to empty the trash...

From the terminal, type:

Code:
lsof | grep 'VoiceTrigger'
This should (eventually) list any open files that include "VoiceTrigger" in the path. In the results, the first column is the process name and the second is the process id, which should enable you to kill the processes and then perform the delete.
