Man convicted of murdering British doctor and fiancee in US penthouse

A man has been convicted of murdering a British doctor and his fiancee in their luxury US home – after being thrown out of court for threatening to sexually assault the prosecutor’s wife.

Dr Richard Field, who was originally from London, and his partner, Dr Lina Bolanos, were brutally murdered inside their South Boston penthouse in May 2017.

The couple, who worked as anaesthesiologists, were found tied up with their throats cut.

Bampumim Teixeira, who had worked as a concierge at the building, stood trial accused of two counts of first-degree murder, as well as charges of robbery, kidnapping and “armed home invasion”.

Jurors took less than eight hours of deliberations before returning guilty verdicts, the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office said.
