"Whom" is the objective form, used with objects (direct object, indirect object, object of the preposition, etc.) while "who" is the subjective/nominative form.
Thus, "Who are you?" Is correct because "who" acts as the predicate nominative. But "Whom did you kill?" (Not "who did you kill.") Is correct because the interrogative pronoun acts as the object, viz. You did kill WHOM (replaces the object, like panda/gorilla/my neighbor/etc.).

"you" is the subject in "Who did YOU kill". Shouldn't it be "Who" then?

No..."You" is indeed the subject, which means the interrogative pronoun (in this case "Whom") is serving the role of the direct object.

If you can replace the word with "Him", it's whom. If you can replace it with "He", it's who. At least, that's how I remember it.

That’s good quick trick to remember it too. Thanks for the tip. :-)

The easiest rule of thumb is to use 'who' where you would use 'he' or 'she', and 'whom' where you would use 'him' or 'her'.
