A man on trial for killing two doctors in their luxury Boston condominium has been found guilty of two counts of murder.

A Boston jury found 33-year-old Bampumim Teixeira guilty Tuesday in the May 2017 stabbing deaths of Dr. Richard Field and Dr. Lina Bolanos.

The jury started deliberating Monday following closing statements by the prosecution and defense in Suffolk County Superior Court.

Earlier Tuesday, Teixeira was removed from the courtroom after threatening to sexually assault the prosecutor's wife.

Teixeira said "Hey Pappas, you better hope I never get out of jail," before threatening the wife of Assistant Suffolk District Attorney John Pappas.

Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins says her office is considering bringing additional charges against Teixeira for the outburst.

Authorities say Teixeira had no known personal relationship with the victims but had once worked briefly as a concierge in their building.

Teixeira told investigators he was having an affair with Bolanos. He said Field came home and became enraged, and killed Bolanos. Teixeira said he then killed Field in self-defense.

Bolanos, 38, was a pediatric anesthesiologist at Massachusetts Eye and Ear. Field, 49, was an anesthesiologist at North Shore Pain Management.
