Regarding this, who kills Macbeth in the play?

After Macbeth murdered Duncan, it was Macduff who discovered the body. Later his wife, Lady Macduff, was murdered by Macbeth. Macduff encourages Duncan's son Malcolm to return from England to Scotland to take the throne from Macbeth. Upon returning to Scotland, Macduff confronts Macbeth and kills him.

Subsequently, question is, why doesn't Malcolm become king after his father's death? Malcolm is a guest at Macbeth's castle when Macbeth kills Malcolm's father, Duncan, in Act 2.2. Malcolm and his brother are informed of the death in Act 2.3. Because they are suspected of the murder, Malcolm is not immediately declared the king.

Beside above, what is the role of Malcolm in Macbeth?

Malcolm is King Duncan's oldest son and the heir to the throne of Scotland. After his father dies, Malcolm is afraid for his life and confused about his role. Instead of stepping in to become king, he leaves Scotland and goes to England.

How does everyone die in Macbeth?

The short answer to this question is that everyone who dies in Macbeth does so as a direct or an indirect result of the main character's actions. The deaths begin in Act II when Macbeth himself murders Duncan as he sleeps. Macbeth then dispatches murderers to kill Banquo, Fleance, Lady Macduff, and her children.
