With all the overwhelming news about the coronavirus and the presidential election, I overlooked a very important story a few months ago. Remember that horrifying double murder of two anesthesiologists in Boston in 2017? Drs. Lina Bolanos and Richard Field, an engaged couple working at Harvard Medical School, came home from work and were confronted by an intruder. They were bound and their throats slashed. The murder, Bampumin Teixeira, used to work in the building as a concierge and had access to the premises. He committed two murders for a simple robbery.
Well justice has been rendered. In December of last year, he was found guilty of the murders and received two consecutive life sentences with no possibility of parole. This doesn't even count the sentences for his other crimes including armed robbery, kidnapping, and home invasion.
Mr. Teixeira exhibited erratic behavior throughout the trial, including threatening the prosecutor and shouting in the courtroom. He had to be dragged out and watched the proceedings on TV from a separate room. He showed no remorse when he learned of his sentence.
RIP good doctors.
