    where was you born? = is not correct grammatically
    I was
    you were
    he/she/it was
    we were
    you were
    they were

    Two people have killed. = it shows the doers of the action; Two people=two killers
    Two people have been killed. = it shows that two people are killed; here the two people are dead.
