What is the output of alternator when running?
Use a voltmeter and put on 20V setting and touch red lead to positive and black to negative on battery while car is running. You want to see 13.5 - 14.8 volts. This range is different for all brands and models. I could not find your exact range for your car but this is the standard. From your description, I think your alternator is bad and killed the first battery.
It was just that the alternator...dead..fixed and now good thank you.
