Suspect in Boston penthouse slayings has criminal history


BOSTON (AP) — Police say a man accused of killing two engaged doctors at a luxury Boston condominium building has a criminal history of robbing banks.

Bampumim Teixeira is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on multiple charges. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.

Police found the bodies of 38-year-old Dr. Lina Bolanos and 49-year-old Dr. Richard Field Friday night after responding to a report of a man with a gun. Police say Teixeira opened fire when officers confronted him at the door. Officers fired back, injuring Teixeira.

Bolanos was a pediatric anesthesiologist at Massachusetts Eye and Ear. Field also was an anesthesiologist and worked at North Shore Pain Management.

Authorities say Teixeira has a pair of larceny convictions on his record.

A motive for the killings remains unclear.
