THe original Thane of Cawdor was found to be part of the rebellion against King Duncan. When this is found out and the rebellion defeated Duncan orders the execution of the traitorous Cawdor and gives his "former title" to Macbeth who is now a war hero.
Because he murdered the king which is why he bcomes the new king.
