Man keeps eyes closed during hospital bed court hearing

Bumpumim Teixeira had a courtroom hearing with his eyes closed. The hearing took place by his hospital bed. A judge, lawyers, and a court officer stood around him as he recovered from gunshots by police.

He is accused of killing two doctors. The doctors were engaged to be married.

Steve Sachs, Defense Attorney for Bumpumim Teixeira, gave the defense’s side, “Your honor, I am not going to argue bail at this time. I’ve had a brief time to speak with Mr. Teixeira. You can see his physical condition is not great. I haven’t been able to talk with him as much as I’d like to.”

The result of the hospital bed hearing is Teixeira is to be held without bail.
