    A Long Island ex-con has been arrested after admitting to killing his friend and leaving him in a closet for nearly a week. Aston Barth of Central Islip, N.Y., admitted to strangling his friend Jason Campbell during an argument last week. He then attempted to dismember the body with an ax, but only cut him at the neck before putting a garbage bag over Campbell’s head and stuffing him in a closet where his body was discovered on Christmas Eve. Barth had previously been arrested in 2007 for robbing a bank dressed like a woman.
