Bampumim Teixeira was sentenced to life in prison for the brutal murders of Colombian doctor Lina Bolaños, and her fiancé, Dr. Richard Field. A jury found him guilty of first-degree murder in the deaths of the doctors at his penthouse in Boston in May 2017. Teixeira, 33, works as a custodian of the building where the couple of anesthesiologists lived. Bolanos, 39, and Field, 48, were stabbed to death. Teixeira was also found guilty of armed robbery, kidnapping, and invasion after entering the couple's home without authorization, brutally beating them, and then stabbing them.

The New Guinea-born man wrote the words "he killed my wife" on the penthouse wall, according to reports. Teixeira argued that he had been Bolaños' lover and that Field had stabbed his fiancee after finding her unfaithful to Teixeira. He also claimed that he had killed Field in self-defense. Prosecutors denied that version of events, saying it was all "imagined" and false.

Both Bolanos and her fiancé desperately tried to seek help, calling 911 multiple times, but the calls were intercepted and the audio is not heard well, according to reports. They also texted friends asking them to call 911. When police arrived at the penthouse they arrested Teixeira and found the bodies of the doctors. Authorities also found a backpack in the jeweled home and a fake gun. Bolanos was found with 24 stab wounds to her body and head and face injuries, according to the coroner. May they rest in peace.
