The HOTTEST criminal around that has landed himself a modeling contract has now just landed himself a death sentence by his wife! WHAT?

An article saying Jeremy Meeks, whose mugshot went viral last month, was killed by his wife is nothing more than a hoax.

The bogus article was posted on Huzlers.com, a self-described “satire” website.

According to its disclaimer at the bottom of each page, it says that “Huzlers.com is a combination of real shocking news and satire news to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief.”

The fake article has a few thousand shares and “likes” on Facebook as of Wednesday night.

It reads in part: “According to jail records, Jeremy Meek was released from jail just before midnight on Tuesday night. About an hour later, just before 1 a.m. on Wednesday morning, Stockton Police found him laying in the road in the area of Dayton and West in Central Stockton. He was taken to Community Regional Medical Center where he died from his wounds shortly after arriving (sic).”
