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.
