Msedgedriver running in background

I am using webdriverIO e2e framework with jasmine and selenium standalone server and when running a test the driver fails to stop and continues running in the background on Windows 10. If I attempt to run the test again it errors out because the msedgedriver is still running in the background and will not run because the driver is busy. Chrome and IE stop running but edge is left running in the background. What is the proper way to stop the process running after the test concludes?

    The documentation here will not work for me since I am using javascript. I am writing the tests for an angular application using webdriverIO framework and uses the Selenium Standalone Service. The webdriverIO framwork is able to use the Chromedriver and IEdriver without an issue. After each test IE and Chrome browser windows close and the test is completed however for the msedgedriver, the test runs the browser closes but the msedriver is left running in the background and I have yet to find a webdriver command that can forcibly stop the msedriver running. I'm pretty sure that this will then be a webdriverIO problem and not a MS Edge problem.
