    I saw her killed

    If you hear "I saw her killed", does it sound "I saw the state of her already killed" or "I saw she was being killed"?
    I mean a completed action or an ongoing action? I think it sound the former, and to express the latter, probably "I saw her (in the middle of) being killed".
