In considering my response further, another possibility occurred to me: You are using a notebook StyleSheet in which Title and Subtitle cells do not display their cell brackets at all. In that case, you could temporarily change the Style Sheet back to a default style that does show those brackets, delete the cell, and then restore the Style Sheet you want. Of course do this ONLY if you are using a saved, separate Style Sheet rather than an imported copy that you have modified.
