The correct option is not to kill Connie. One of the choices not to make is to kill her. Doing so will make the killer suddenly appear and swing the axe into Kate’s forehead killing her. 

On the other hand, if you decide not to kill the dog, the killer will still find both characters, but the dog will interrupt the killer, leading both characters to escape and survive.

What you should do is not attack the killer. If you choose to do so, Erin will grab a sharp weapon and use it to attack the killer. However, Erin will lose her strength because of her asthma, and the killer will pull out the sharp weapon and use it to impale Erin ending up killing her.
