BOSTON, MA – The man who killed two Boston doctors was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. He beat, bound, and stabbed the engaged couple to death with a carving knife inside their upscale South Boston condo.
Apart from this, 33-year-old Bampumim Teixeira was found guilty by a Suffolk County grand jury on Tuesday. The man from Chelsea was convicted of murdering two Boston doctors, Dr. Lina Bolanos and Dr. Richard Field.
However, Teixeira was forced to watch the sentencing on a video monitor in another room per Judge Mitchell Kaplan’s instruction. The judge’s order stemmed from several outbursts Teixeira had earlier in the week. Still, he was given the opportunity to speak before his sentencing but chose not to.
It should be noted that Teixeira was a doorman at the Macallen Building on Dorchester Avenue where the doctors lived. Before violently killing the couple on May 5, 2017, he duct-taped them. Reportedly, authorities discovered the bodies in pools of blood.
Furthermore, on Tuesday, Teixeira was pulled out of court for verbally attacking Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney John Pappas. In addition to this, he made offensive remarks and threatened to sexually assault Pappas’ wife.
Moments before the guilty verdicts were announced, Teixeira yelled out, “Do you want to know his last words?” Undoubtably, Field’s family were brought to tears. And, as a result of his outburst, Teixeira was swarmed by officers and ushered away.
During a police interview, Teixeira told detectives that he and Bolanos were having an affair. Additionally, stating that Field stabbed Bolanos to death after walking in on them.
He said he murdered Field in an act of self-defense.
The Boston doctors planned to get married and have children. As well as open a health clinic in the Bahamas for the less fortunate.
