Well, for one, they didn't actually kill their brother, Joseph. If you'll remember from Genesis -> They actually end up trading him to some Egyptians for a few pieces of silver.

JOSEPH is only 17 years old when he is taken down to Egypt. He sold to a man named Potiphar. This man works for the king of Egypt, who is called Pharaoh. Joseph works hard for his master, Potiphar. So when Joseph grows older, Potiphar puts him in charge of his whole house. Joseph grows up to be a very good-looking man, and Potiphar's wife wants him to lay in bed with him. Joseph knew that, that was wrong, and told the wife he would not do that. Potiphar's wife got very angry.

Why did the Israelites migrate to Eygpt?

It started with Joseph, Abraham's great grandson. Joseph's brothers were jealous of their fathers love for Joseph, so they sold him to slave traders heading to Egypt. Through hard times, Joseph worked his way up from slave to 2nd in charge of Egypt! His family that lived in Canaan had a famine and his father sent Joseph's brothers up to Egypt to get food. When they found out that Joseph was alive and said they were sorry, they went back to Canaan and brought their families with them, along with Jacob, to Egypt. Soon, that would lead to the deliverance of God's people.

Genesis 37:12-36 of the Jewish Talmud and the standard Christian Bible tell the story of how Joseph found himself in Egypt.Joseph was his father's favorite child. His 11 brothers became jealous and captured him. They sold him as a slave to a passing merchant caravan on its way to Egypt. When the caravan arrived in Egypt, Joseph's owner sold him to the Pharoah's captain of the guard.As a captured slave, Joseph probably walked all the way to Egypt with the caravan. That is how Joseph came to be in Egypt.
