Kinslaying is a great taboo in Westeros. When a member of family kills a relation he/she is dubbed a Kinslayer. Any individual who slays a member of their own family is believed to be cursed by the gods. Many Lords and smallfolk believe this and thus those who slay their own blood are usually looked down upon or shunned. There is a saying...

"Old Gods or New, it makes no matter, No man is so accursed as the Kinslayer"[1].

Sometimes in extreme circumstances Kinslayers are even executed as punishment for their deeds.
