I have suckers growing below the graft on pecan trees but the trunk looks dead. I have removed the suckers and trimmed back the trunk. tree is a year old but didnt develope well and is about 5-6 inches above the ground should i remove the suckers again and trim back the main stalk again.

What is your objective? If the trunk is dead there is no point in trying to revive it from the suckers; they will not be true to the desired grafted variety. If you just want the tree to regrow and don't care about the variety, allow one sucker to grow up, remove the others.
If you want to replant in the same place, dig out the existing stump.
