Sifrey is a plural. You can see in Rishonim that they quote The Mechilta DeRashbi also as "Sifrey". סתם ספרי רבי שמעון (Sanhedrin 86a) Rav wrote Sifra and Sifrey. Sifre is generally according to RaShBY opinion. see here in wikipedia. The main book (the largest) is on Vaykra, it is Called "The" book, Sifra. Sifrey, the remaining books of Rav on Bamidbar, ...

This is an important question, there are several examples of Rabbis that "Teshuva killed them". We see the case cited (BTW, in the Translation it seems to lakes the end of the statement "עד שמת באותה מיתה", "until he died from this death").
