He is accused of killing two engaged doctors inside the penthouse of a luxury Boston condominium building. Teixeria has a criminal history of robbing banks, said police, who did not provide a motive in the case but said the suspect most likely knew the victims. Police found the bodies of Dr. Lina Bolanos and Dr. Richard Field on Friday night at the Macallen Building in South Boston after responding to a report of a man with a gun.
