In the TV series Oz, the character William Giles was put on death row, requested death by stoning, which lead to a new law by the state.

He was last seen in the beginning of Season 5, where he won a fight against Alvarez.

What happened to him after that? Maybe I missed a dialog where someone talked about him? Or is his fate open?

    Doesn't sound like you've missed anything according to his character page on Wikipedia. Same exact text is on the OZ wiki.

    That was such a great show, and the first time I saw Chris Meloni, JK Simmons and Harold Perrineau. Commented Mar 24, 2015 at 18:45

His character was just crossed out of the show after the penultimate season's opener Visitation. It's been a while, but if memory serves, no reason is ever given for this. From the trivia section for Visitation on TV.com:

This episode marks the last appearance of the great supporting character William Giles. He is never even spoken of again until the audio clips at the very end of Exuent Omnes, which is an old clip from season 2.

Giles's wikia page corroborates it:

Last appearance: "Visitation" (episode 5.01)
Reason/Cause: End of Storyline
