What can be done if the executor is hiding the Will from the beneficiaries?

Question Details: My husband's cousin is executer of his uncle's estate and was supposed to give my husband, his sister and probably others what they were entitled to according to the Will. However, she didn't. Instead she spent everything and sold everything for debt. When asked about it she won't say where the Will is or who drafted it (law firm, etc). Does my husband and sister have the legal right to sue her if they don't have the Will to prove that she didn't give them the stuff that they were supposed to get?
