[vox-tech] gpg -- how to remove an expired signature?

i can't figure this one out.

1. someone signed my key, but their own public key expired.
2. they got a new key and signed my key with it.
3. i imported their new signature.

since their old key is expired, i removed it from my keyring, expecting
that their old signature would be removed from my key.

in other words, both their expired and non-expired signature is still on
my key, even though i removed their expired key from my keyring.

the expired key is 58D7BA3C.
