Janet Sterling (Kari Wuhrer) and Abby Biggs (Joelle Carter) were the main villainesses from CSI:  Miami episode 5.04:  "If Looks Could Kill" (airdate October 9, 2006).

Janet and Abby were lead partners for J.A. Models, an agency for male models. As revealed in the episode, they were also cohorts in a murderous scheme; placing insurance policies on their clients and having them killed to collect the financial benefits. Their spree began by accident; one of their models died while in a sauna, and when they saw the payout ($2 million to be exact), they decided to do the same to their other clients.

During Calleigh's interrogation of Abby, she revealed that an insurance policy worth $6 million was placed on her by Janet, clearly showing that Janet no longer had intentions in sharing the benefits with her partner. After learning this, Abby confronted Janet and later killed her with a single gunshot to her chest. Unbeknownst to Abby, the evil Janet put her plan to kill Abby in action, as she laced some lip gloss with arsenic and gave it to her before she was killed. Abby was interrogated again regarding Janet's murder, and put on the lip gloss. She later felt the effects of the poison and died instantly.
