Check and see if it is truly dead. This article will help with that:

If it is dead, you can trim away anything that is dead. There are many things that could have killed the upper part of the plant. As a precaution, I would treat the plant with neem oil. This will kill 90% of what may have been harming the plant but is safe for people and pets.
