TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Authorities say an auction of Steven Powell’s home in Washington state has been put on hold.

A judge had cleared the way for the auction this week to help pay a judgment Powell owes to two girls that he secretly photographed. Pierce County Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer says the Friday auction was cancelled and may be rescheduled for the future. He did not immediately provide reason for the delay.

Powell is the father-in-law of Utah mother Susan Cox-Powell, who disappeared four years ago. Investigators found nude images of the neighbor girls while searching Powell’s home for information about the missing mother.

His son, Josh Powell, was a suspect before killing himself and his two children in February of last year.
