No evidence that man accused of killing 2 Boston doctors knew victims: District attorney says ABC news reported
There is no evidence that the Chelsea, Massachusetts, man accused of killing two Boston doctors in their home knew his victims, Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley said today.
The suspect, 30-year-old Bampumim Teixeira, was arraigned this afternoon on two counts of murder in connection with the killings of Richard Field, 49, and Lina Bolanos, 38, an engaged couple found dead in their penthouse apartment in Boston Friday night. A not-guilty plea was entered on his behalf for both charges.
Lying in a hospital bed with multiple gunshot wounds, his eyes opening periodically, Bampumim Teixeira was arraigned on two counts of murder at Tufts Medical Center in Boston on Monday afternoon.
A judge standing beside Teixeira — a 30-year-old from Chelsea, Mass. — entered two not-guilty pleas in the killings of Richard Field, 49, and Lina Bolanos, 38 — Boston doctors who were engaged to be married, according to the The Washington Post reported.

The suspect accused in the brutal murders of two engaged doctors at their penthouse condominium in Boston apparently left a black bag stuffed with the woman’s jewelry at
the scene of the crime, a prosecutor said Monday during the arraignment in a hospital room.
The judge ordered the suspect, Bampumim Teixeira, held without bail on murder charges. The prosecutor did not give any additional details about a possible motive. Cut-up photos of the couple and a message of retribution reportedly appeared at the scene as well.
Richard Field, 49, and Lina Bolanos, 38, were found dead on the 11th floor of the Macallan Building Friday, police said. The doctors were bound at the hands with their throats slit — and there was blood smeared on the wall, the Boston Globe reported.
An attorney for Teixeira, 30, entered not-guilty pleas on his behalf to two counts of murder. Teixeira kept his eyes closed through his arraignment at Tufts Medical Center, and his lawyer didn’t argue for bail. Teixeira had been shot in the hand, abdomen and leg during a shootout with police.
Field had sent a text message to a friend in his final moments saying there was “a gunman in the house,” but when police arrived, it was too late, prosecutors told the judge.
Teixeira fired at the arriving officers, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said. Police shot back at Teixeira, striking him but not killing him. No officers were hurt.
“It’s very troubling,” Evans said Saturday. “These are two well-respected people killed in their penthouse apartment.”
