A judge was present at the hearing at Tufts Medical Center in Boston Monday as 30-year-old accused killer Bampumim Teixeira mostly kept his eyes shut.

As the proceedings unfolded, he could be seen nodding every now and then. He didn't say a word, except at the end when he mumbled something indecipherable.

Authorities say Bampumim Teixeira was wounded after he opened fire on cops responding to a report of a double homicide in the penthouse of a swanky apartment building in Boston.

Police found two doctors with their throats slit and hands bound. The victims were identified as anesthesiologists Lina Bolanos, 38, and her fiancé Richard Field, 49.

Dr. Field and Dr. Bolanos may have knew their alleged killer, although it's not known how. Nor is it known how Texeira allegedly entered the penthouse.

Dr. Richard Field had reportedly tried to text a friend for help, saying an armed man was inside their apartment. Sadly, help did not arrive in time.

A plea of not guilty was entered for the accused murderer.
