HOUSTON -

A big development in the search for the late hand surgeon Michael Brown's missing fortune.

A federal bankruptcy judge has ordered several banks to freeze the accounts of a Florida woman who some have accused of hiding cash or gifts, given to her by Brown, before he died.

Local 2 spoke to artist Irina Bogatcheva when we tracked the story to Miami last year. She denied hiding anything.

Another estate auction is being held this weekend. The items on the auction block include guns and pens.

The auction is Sunday at 1 p.m. at Webster's Auction Palace in north Houston.
