A is not appropriate because byron and jack are being compared; actually we want to compare their deaths.
The most appropriate would have been: Just as Byron was killed.
But since the options do not list it, I go for B.

Agree with C. need "just as" to make the comparision of clauses valid.

A. I think, similarity of the situations is at issue here.
