Boston Penthouse Murderer Convicted After Courtroom Outburst

A jury found a man guilty Tuesday of killing two doctors in their luxury Boston condominium, the AP reports. Bampumim Teixeira, 33, was convicted in Suffolk County Superior Court in the May 2017 stabbing deaths of Drs. Richard Field and Lina Bolanos. Earlier Tuesday, Teixeira had been removed from the courtroom after threatening to sexually assault the prosecutor’s wife. Teixeira said, “Hey Pappas, you better hope I never get out of jail,” before threatening the wife of Assistant Suffolk District Attorney John Pappas. The prosecutor’s office is considering bringing additional charges against Teixeira for the outburst, District Attorney Rachael Rollins said.

Authorities say Teixeira had no known personal relationship with the victims but worked briefly as a concierge in their building. But Teixeira told investigators he had been having an affair with Bolanos. Field, he claimed, came home, became enraged and killed Bolanos. Teixeira said he then killed Field in self-defense. Bolanos, 38, was a pediatric anesthesiologist at Massachusetts Eye and Ear. Field, 49, was an anesthesiologist at North Shore Pain Management. They were engaged and planning to marry the following year. The jury had begun deliberating Monday following closing statements by the prosecution and defense. (Before the doctors were killed, a final text was sent: “Serious.”)
