seize the life

Latin translation:carpe vitam
Explanation:
paraphrasing the famous verse of Horace "Carpe diem ab hora fugentem" (Seize the day that quickly fades away...)

Unless you mean "kill him", which may be another meaning of "seize his life".
In this case, perhaps you might say "illius vitam eripe".
