Alec McIntyre thought he hit the jackpot when Adam Chandler hired him
to be his right hand man. Adam took a leave of absence from Chandler Industries
to deal with his paralysis. In the interim, Alec took over the day-to-day
operations for Adam.
It was Alec’s greed that would lead to his undoing. Alec already
had Adam’s job, but he wanted more. Alec had grown fond of Adam’s
new wife, Gloria Chandler. Gloria kept Alec at bay. That all changed when
they were stranded together in Adam’s cabin. Gloria gave into temptations.
Alec promised that he would leave town after they made love. But he became
obsessed with his new lover, and reneged on his promise.
Gloria broke off her affair with Alec. When Adam went missing, Alec saw
it as a perfect opportunity to take over his life. But, Adam was still
very much in Pine Valley, masquerading as his twin brother, Stuart Chandler.
Adam relegated Alec to working only at Enchantment.
Alec learned that he was the father of young boy, Jamal Wilson. He had
had an affair with his mother, Janine Wilson, years ago. Alec now wanted
to be a part of his son’s life. Alec sued his foster parents, Tom
and Livia Cudahy for custody. Alec won out, but he could tell Jamal was
unhappy. Jamal took Alec to court to break their custody. Alec did not
want to put Jamal through anymore pain, so he allowed the Cudahy’s
to adopt him.
Alec was set to marry Hayley. But, on their wedding day, Hayley got cold
feet and left him at the altar. Alec became resentful of his bride to
be. Though he told Hayley that he would wait for her, Alec secretly plotted
his revenge. Alec was determined to steal Enchantment from under her.
After they eloped, Alec emptied their joint bank account
But Alec’s plot hit a snag when Alec fell into an affair with Hayley’s
mother, Arlene Vaughan. Arlene had got wind of Alec’s plan and wanted
in on the profits. When Arlene threatened to tell Hayley everything, Alec
knew he had to act fast. He plotted one more seduction of Arlene. That
night, he drank the alcoholic Arlene into a drunken stupor. Then, he took
a bottle vodka and prepared to funnel it down her throat to make her die
of alcohol poisoning. Little did he know, Hayley had followed her mother
to Alec’s hotel room. Hayley stopped her husband, and he was taken
into custody for attempted murder. After he was convicted, Hayley served
Alec with divorce papers.
