i'm sure it could be done better but here's something you can put in 
your .emacs file:

(defun c-kill-statement ()
  "a handy way to kill a statement even when it spans multiple lines."
    (let ((start (point)))
      (let ((end (point)))
        (kill-region start end)))))

you can then type M-x c-kill-statement to try it out to make sure that's what 
you really want. if it is what you want, assign a key binding to it and 
you're off to the races.
