Holy Priests give 2 deaths in M+'s

I was running a +8 Darkheart thicket, running as a holy priest when I died. On the death counter is starts as 1 with 5 seconds taken off, then the tank dies so it ups it to two deaths, then once my Spirit of Redemption ended the death count went up to 3. I thought it was just a bug but then i died and again and my first death and then my angel death counted as 2 deaths. I was wondering if this is intended or not.
