A man who left a couple dead in pools of blood in their Boston penthouse heard his punishment Friday by video conference, preemptively banished from the courtroom after his earlier outbursts in the stunning double-murder case.

Bampumim Teixeira received two consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole for murder in the 2017 stabbing deaths of Lina Bolanos and Richard Field, both anesthesiologists who were engaged to be married.

Teixeira watched the sentencing live from a nearby room, standing silently under guard, his hands shackled behind his back. A TV in the main courtroom showed his reaction: Nodding, before being led away.

Judge Mitchell Kaplan made Teixeira watch in that separate room, after Teixeira was twice dragged out of court Tuesday -- the day he was convicted -- once for threatening the prosecutor, and once for shouting about Field's last words.

Instead, the words of the victims' loved ones resonated most deeply. Three people gave emotional tributes to Bolanos and Field in court Friday before the sentencing, at one point moving one of the prosecutors to tears.

Bolanos' mother, Ana Delia Vergara, addressed the court in her native Spanish, thanking God for choosing her to be her mom before hailing Field as the love of Bolanos' life.

Heaven - Interpreter - Glasses - Sobbing

"They will love each other in heaven," she said through an interpreter before removing her glasses and sobbing.

Kaplan also sentenced Teixeira for other convictions in the case -- 25 years for armed robbery, 20 for home invasion and at least nine for kidnapping -- all of which Kaplan said were largely symbolic, given his life terms.

The trial brought to light the final harrowing night of the two well-known Boston anesthesiologists.
