Short summary of your issue
"Dynastic Kinslayer" trait is given to those who rightfully execute

Game Version
1.4.4 (Azure)

What OS are you playing on?

What platform are you using?

Do you have mods enabled?

Have you tried verifying your game files (Steam only)?

How much "pain" is this causing you?

Please explain the issue you experienced in the most condensed way possible
I always used to think this was a normal trait to gain, even if executing people, though I finally noticed the description on the trait: "[Name] has committed the sin of murdering a dynasty member." The thing is, I just rightfully executed someone who tried to kill me. I didn't "murder" the person. If this trait is generally for anyone who kills another dynasty member, regardless of how, I wouldn't mind it. But seeing as the trait defines itself as one given to those who *murder* another dynasty member, this looks to be mistakenly applied to many, many people.

Please explain how to reproduce the issue
Under a religion that says dynastic kinslaying is a crime, simply imprison a member of your dynasty who has committed a crime that warrants execution, and then execute them. You will then gain the trait.

Is there anything else you think could help us identify/replicate the issue?
In the attached save file, I've imprisoned one "Princess Alesia". Execute her, and the trait will appear.

I have attached a save game
