A Brooklyn man was arraigned on a second-degree murder charge Monday after police say he stabbed a man multiple times and then left his body in a plastic container over the weekend.

Joshua Simser, 24, was arrested Sunday and charged with second-degree murder.

Investigators were tipped off by a Brooklyn nightclub owner who called police, saying one of his employees admitted to killing somebody.

Police say the unidentified body was found Saturday afternoon inside Simser's house in Flatlands.

Police say the victim and Simser were friends and that the two had an argument, which sources tell NY1 was over cigarettes.
