Executing the kill statement

I would like to execute the kill statement after I have selected the SPID's with the following SQL. I have tried different stored procedures, but they don't seem to actually execute the kill statment:
 select spid from sysprocesses where loginame like 'fordna1%' and login_time < (getdate() - .5)
I want to run this process as a job two times daily.

 Declare @var nvarchar(255) Select @var = 'kill ' + convert(varchar(7),spid) from sysprocesses where loginame like 'fordna1%' and login_time < (getdate() - .5) Exec sp_executesql @var
