Teixeira once worked as a concierge in the South Boston building where Bolanos and Field had a penthouse. He said he was having an affair with Bolanos and was with her when Field unexpectedly came home.
"He said he was going to kill us both," Teixeira whispered to Boston police Sgt. Det. Michael Devane shortly after his arrest.

Teixeira was shot by police when he was arrested at the scene on May 5, 2017.
No evidence has been put forward by authorities to suggest Teixeira had such a relationship with either of the victims. The two doctors were bound when Teixeira allegedly slit their throats, law enforcement sources have said.
Dr. Richard Atkinson, the medical examiner, testified that Bolanos and Field had bruising around their wrists, wounds consistent with being bound or handcuffed.
The medical examiner also told jurors that both victims died from being stabbed — though Bolanos had significantly more signs of trauma.
"There were 24 total sharp force injuries on all sides of her neck," Dr. Atkinson said.
“He killed her. He killed her,” Teixeira told police in his initial interview. “I did nothing wrong.”
The defendant admitted that his story probably wouldn't be well received.
“I’ll tell you everything I know. I know at this point nobody will believe me ... but I’ll stand my ground on every single truth," Teixeira told police. "That’s the way it happened.”
We are going on break now and will return this afternoon for what is likely the last testimony in this trial. Prosecution has yet to rest. Defense has yet to present. But Judge just told jury closing arguments will be on Monday.
Jurors on Friday were shown video footage of Teixeira allegedly lurking outside the doctors' building on the day of the murder. He got into the building through the garage, following a car that entered, the footage showed.
Closing arguments are set for Monday.
