Verbs such as see, watch, hear, notice have object and complement.
Complements for these verbs are usually 0 infinitive, present participle, and past participle.
My question is how do you put when you want to say 'she' was killed ans you saw it?
1. I saw her killed
2. I saw her being killed.
PS: I think 1 is the correct sentence though.

They are both possible, but, as the act of killing is generally a short, even instantaneous one, #1 is far more likely in most contexts.
1. I saw John kill her / I saw her killed
2. I saw drugs killing her / I saw her being killed ( by drugs)
