Heroin hit kills death rap hubby.

Junkie Charles McGregor - who was cleared of murdering his prostitute wife - has died from a drug overdose.

A neighbour found the 33-year-old's body at his flat in Appin Road, Haghill, in Glasgow.

An underworld source said: "It looks as though the hit from his heroin deal was too strong for him.

"He was only out of jail a few days on traffic offences and his tolerance would be low."

McGregor was accused of strangling his call-girl wife, Karen, 26, in 1994 and hiding her body near the SECC.

After a 13-day trial, the jury found the case against him not proven.

One of McGregor's pals yesterday said: "He never really got over the death of Karen."
