If you want to delete a list item then first you need to get the corresponding item. For that you can use CAML query and pass the date time parameter

$list = $rootWeb.Lists.TryGetList($ListName);
$isoDeleteItemsDate = [Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities.SPUtility]::CreateISO8601DateTimeFromSystemDateTime([DateTime]::Now); #change it to date of your preference

$camlQueryString = [String]::Format("<Where><Eq><FieldRef Name='DateTimeFieldName' /><Value IncludeTimeValue='TRUE' Type='DateTime'>{0}</Value></Leq></Where>", $isoDeleteItemsDate);
$camlQuery = New-Object -TypeName "Microsoft.SharePoint.SPQuery" -ArgumentList @($list.DefaultView);

$camlResults = [Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListItemCollection] $list.GetItems($camlQuery);
$listItems = [System.Data.DataTable]$camlResults.GetDataTable();
foreach($listItemRow in $listItems.Rows)
    $listItemIdToDelete = $listItemRow["ID"];
    $listItemToDelete = $listToProcess.GetItemById($listItemIdToDelete);
