The man accused of slashing the throats of two engaged doctors inside the penthouse of a luxury Boston condominium was arraigned from his hospital bed Monday afternoon.
According to CBS Boston, a judge charged 30-year-old Bampumim Teixeira on two charges of murder at Tufts Medical Center. The man was ordered held without bail. Teixeira sat with his eyes closed during the arraignment. He was injured by gunfire after he allegedly murdered the two doctors. According to CBS Boston, Teixeria was shot in the hand, abdomen, and leg. His injuries are not life threatening.
On Friday, two Boston doctors were found were their throats slashed. The two were a couple: identified as Richard Field, 49, and Lina Bolaños, 38. They were found dead, bound at the hands, in their residence on the 11th floor of the condo, Fox 25 Boston reported. An official said the killer wrote a message of retribution on the wall at the scene.
Even though prior reports claimed that Teixeira may have known the doctors, authorities now state that there is no evidience of that. The killer was wearing all black and gloves when was arrested. A motive for the murders has not been released. Teixeira has two larceny convictions on his record. Last June, he passed a note demanding money at a bank. He committed the same crime two years earlier.
Bolaños had invited a surgeon for dinner on Friday night but canceled she claimed because Field was not feeling well, according to her boss at Massachusetts Eye and Ear. Just before he was killed, Field texted a plea for help to a friend. When police arrived the doctors were already dead.
