If a man has the din of חייב מיתה and performs קידושין, is his קידושין valid? We know that in the case of a man whose חייב מיתה, if a person were to go and kill that man, the man who killed him would NOT get מיתה בידי בית דין.

Please edit in where we know the law you cite, how - explicitly - you suspect this may impact the laws of kiddushin, and dejargonification of all Hebrew terms. –  Isaac Moses Mar 14 at 14:25
    
@David - I see nowhere in Halacho that you can kill a person who is חייב מיתה. –  Danny Schoemann Mar 16 at 11:52

@DannySchoemann, note that he didn't say you can. –  msh210 Mar 16 at 16:14
    
Is this question confusing someone who's chayav mitah (by simply committing some aveirah) with someone who had a g'mar din (the beit din rendered a verdict of death). The likelihood of being this being a question is small (because the condemned would have to escape) but the Gemara in perek ben sorer u'moreh does discuss that situation. –  Chanoch Mar 17 at 1:21
    
Yes this is after the gemar din –  David Feigen Mar 17 at 1:25

(Disregarding your claim that a man whose חייב מיתה, if a person were to go and kill that man, the man who killed him would NOT get מיתה בידי בית דין. which I'm sure is not true.)

The Mishna in Arochin (1:3) says:

א,ג הגוסס, והיוצא ליהרג--לא נידר, ולא נערך; רבי חנניה בן עקביה אומר, נערך, מפני שדמיו קצובין, אבל אינו נידר, מפני שאין דמיו קצובין. רבי יוסי אומר, נודר ומעריך ומקדיש; ואם הזיק, חייב בתשלומין.

See that Bartenura there that all agree that he can be ומקדיש- as in "make it Holy".

The argument is whether he pays for items he damages.

There's no reason to assume he cannot marry somebody; the Rambam would have codified it somewhere...
