problem with Delete[]

Delete[] is not removing elements of v in the following function, could 
anyone tell me why?

Rn[N_, p_] := Module[{A, v, c, q, i, j},
     A = Table[0, {i, 1, N}, {j, 1, N}];
     v = Table[i, {i, 2, N}];
     c = 1;
     For[i = 1, i < N, i++,
       j = Random[Integer, {1, Dimensions[v][[1]]}];
       A[[c, v[[j]]]] = 1;
       A[[v[[j]], c]] = 1;
       q = Random[];
       If[q > p, c = v[[j]]];
       Delete[v, j];

thanks in advance,
