A Perth man, who is a Hells Angels bikie gang member, and his Thai wife are sentenced to death over a failed bid to smuggle half a tonne of crystal methamphetamine into Australia via Thailand.

However, the death sentences are expected to be commuted to life prison terms, according to media reports.

Luke Cook, 34 โ€” who is a member of the Hells Angels bikie gang โ€” and his Thai wife Kanyarat Wechapitak, 40, were arrested at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport last December.

They were charged over a 2015 plot to smuggle about $300 million of crystal methamphetamine into Thailand and then on to Australia.
