First go to deployment manager on the CRM Server. Deactivate the organization that you created. After you deactivate the organization, you should be able to delete it from deployment manager (you can only delete deactivated organizations).

After the organization is deleted from deployment manager, go to your SQL Server where you have the database that you want to delete, and delete it from there.

Hope this helps.

Hi

The recommended approach to delete a CRM Org is to disable and delete it from the Deployment Manager.

Please see the link below

docs.microsoft.com/.../delete-an-organization

As explained in the page, the SQL DB will not be deleted automatically, for recovering from accidental deletion of Organization. But you can open the SSMS and delete the database manually.

If you want to automatically do both, you could consider doing the whole thing in a PowerShell script

First you can disable and delete the org in a supported way  and then 

"You can implement the procedure described here by using a Windows PowerShell cmdlet. For more information, see the Disable-CrmOrganization and Remove-CrmOrganization commands."

And you can include steps in your powershell script to delete database as well

I would recommend, you do a backup of the DB before you delete it automatically
