    The funeral for the two Boston doctors who were brutally murdered inside their South Boston penthouse condo last week will be held Friday.

    Joint services for Richard Field and Lina Bolanos will be held at 10 a.m. at the Gate of Heaven Church in South Boston. The two were engaged.

    Bolanos, 38, was a pediatric anesthesiologist at Massachusetts Eye and Ear and an instructor at Harvard Medical School.

    Field, 49, also an anesthesiologist, worked at North Shore Pain Management. 

    A law enforcement source said Field and Bolanos were found with their throats slit and their hands tied behind their backs. A black bag full of jewelry was also found inside their unit. The motive for the killings is believed to be robbery. 

    Bampumim Teixeira, 30, of Chelsea, is charged with two counts of murder in their deaths. Police found Teixeira in their apartment and shot him during a standoff. He is now recovering in a hospital bed.

    Teixeira has a criminal history of robbing banks and was just released from prison in April after serving nine months.
