Delete A Service Application In SharePoint

I needed to delete a service application in SharePoint. Tried to delete it using Central Admin and PowerShell and neither one worked. Good old Staadm was able to delete it. Here is the command:

stsadm.exe -o deleteconfigurationobject -id "87349a22-0cd6-4b35-b420-78fa2dff8c26"

You can find the ID of the service application in the address bar of Central Admin:
You can find the ID using PowerShell:

PS C:\Users\argolebiowski> Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell
PS C:\Users\argolebiowski> Get-SPServiceInstance -server moss
