2003 Altima won't accelerate when in drive

Some weird things going on with my Altima. As I came to a stop off the freeway everything was fine. I tried to turn right but I wasn't able to accelerate. It was pretty much at idle rpms. I pulled the car over. I put it in park and was able to rev the engines...same thing worked for reverse and neutral. So I tried drive again, but still no acceleration. Turned off the engine and tried to start...but it wouldn't start. Dead battery...however, it was a new battery installed yesterday. The battery was replaced because the same thing happened and the new battery solved the problem..at least for a day. It appears that something is shorting out the battery...maybe the alternator? I'm puzzled to why I can't accelerate though...any help is appreciated.
