Officials in a Cincinnati suburb have concluded that Jasen Dixon's yard display complies with local zoning laws because he removed its roof. The zombie baby is protected by the U.S. Constitution.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Jasen Dixon has once again put up his Nativity scene outside Cincinnati. It's a zombie Nativity scene. Instead of baby Jesus, there's a creepy, undead baby in the manger. People complained about this scene last year.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Here we go again, the war on zombie Christmas.

INSKEEP: Dixon was even accused of zoning violations. So now he's made changes. He removed the roof so it's not an illegal structure. The baby zombie remains. The Constitution covers that. It's MORNING EDITION.
