Why does my new battery completely lose its charge overnight?

(1990 Ford Taurus)
in Denver, CO on January 16, 2013
I replaced the battery when the old one died. Overnight, the new battery lost its charge. I had the car towed to my repairman who replaced the positive battery cable and completely charged the battery. It lost its charge overnight again.
