Yvette Cade excelled at her job with T-Mobile, where she was Maryland\u0027s top salesperson of the year for 2004. But her on-the-job achievement was at odds with the dark secret of a violent home life.\nDuring Cade\u0027s four-year marriage to Roger Hargrave, her husband repeatedly choked and hit her. After she left him, he stalked her.\nShe feared for her life. But she feared losing her job more. That\u0027s why—even after a night of menacing threats—she went to work as scheduled on Oct. 10, 2005.\n"I was afraid to miss work because I wanted to get out of this situation. I didn\u0027t want to be without a job," she says.\nWhen Hargrave entered the T-Mobile store in Clinton, Md., that morning, Cade was working with a customer. She tried to ignore him. But he doused her with gasoline carried in a Sprite bottle and set her on fire.\n"I felt the fire just ripping at my back," Cade recalls. She remembers seeing what she thought was flesh dripping from her face. It was her hair melting in 1,500-degree flames.
