He came to Oakdale to see his son, Noah Mayer, who was dating Maddie Colemanat the time. Winston encouraged the relationship, even offering to help pay for the couple to buy a new bed so they could move in together, but Noah had feelings for Luke Snyder, not Maddie, and admitted as much to them both despite fearing Winston's reaction. After reacting with anger upon discovering the pair kissing, Winston pretended to have a change of heart, convincing Noah to invite Luke on a fishing trip. During the trip he tried to kill Luke, resulting in Luke's paralysis from the waist down. Winston attempted to kill Luke again at the hospital but was stopped by Dusty Donovanand arrested for the murder of his wife, Cheri.
