Conway also said Teixeira did not know the two victims, who sustained "obvious trauma". Police opened fire, shooting Teixeira in the hand, abdomen and leg, before arresting him.
Prosecutors said a backpack filled with jewelry was conspicuously left at the crime scene. Before that, he worked as an anesthesiologist and pain management specialist at Beverly Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital.
"As doctors, they dedicated their professional lives to alleviating suffering and ensuring the safety of those most vulnerable - children undergoing surgery", the family said.
Sources told WFXT that Dr. Lina Balanos and Dr. Richard Field were found with their throats slashed in their penthouse apartment. Josh Golden, the owner of Luxury Residential Group, says that his group regularly works with the building to sell units and recently sold the penthouse across the hall from Bolanos and Field's unit.
"It's just too overwhelming to experience", Field's brother, Jason Field, told TIME on Tuesday.
Field and Bolanos were found dead in their 11th floor condominium last Friday with her hands bound and throats slit.
The victims' bodies were found, alongside a knife and a rucksack full of jewellery, by a Swat team.
Teixeira's court-appointed attorney did not return PEOPLE's call for comment. A judge agreed to seal some documents in the case for 90 days. His next hearing is set for 8 June.
Dr Bolanos worked at Massachusetts Eye and Ear hospital as a paediatric anaesthetist and was an instructor at the Harvard Medical School. The suspect pleaded not guilty to murder charges Monday, prosecutors said. It could not be determined if he has a lawyer.
Bampumim Teixeira was arrested after police exchanged fire with him while responding to reports of an intruder at the high-rise flats on Friday night. No police officers were struck by gunfire but several were transported to area hospitals for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Field and Bolanos were brutally murdered.
The North Shore Pain Management centre, where he had worked since 2010, spoke of him as a "guiding vision" who gave patients and colleagues his "tireless devotion". Officers had gone to the building on a report of a man with a gun. Authorities believe the ex-convict, identified as 30-year-old Bampumin Teixeira, may have known the couple. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
While responding to a call that an armed man was in an upscale Boston apartment building, police arrived at the scene only to be greeted with an onslaught of bullets from Bampumim Teixeira, reports the Boston Globe.
Police have not said how they were killed. Officers fired back, injuring Teixeira.
Update: In a late Monday afternoon press conference, Suffolk District Attorney Dan Conley said: "There is no evidence whatsoever at this stage to conclude that this defendant had a personal relationship with Dr. Bolanos or Dr".
