    Re: Question

    Did you killed her?
    Wrong

    Did you kill her?
    Correct

    Do you kill her?
    Grammatical, but very strange. It would imply a habitual behavior (i.e. that you kill someone repeatedly, for habit)
    EDIT: Come to think about it, still we would say "This thing is killing me"

    Never do that again,understood?
    Never do that again,understand?

    Both are correct, but I dare say both are a bit informal. In a more grammatically correct (or formal, if you prefer) way, they would be phrased as:
    "Never do that again, is that/have you understood?"
    "Never do that again, do you understand?"
