It is this point in time during the execution phase of the project that the stakeholders or the sponsor decide to kill the project (meaning the project no longer exists, and all work on that project should immediately stop).

Killing a project usually happens when the project is draining more money and time than expected, while at the same time, the resulting product is no longer thought to bring an ROI that will compensate for all the extra work and money.
