The FBI alleged Bishop, 60, and the woman, now 28, started an intimate, romantic relationship in June 2011. The prosecution said she was a graduate student and that she and Bishop were having an extramarital affair.
Utah state records show Bishop was married until 2012.
The FBI's affidavit alleged the woman might have attended an international defence conference in Hawaii, where she initially met Bishop, specifically to target people like Bishop who had access to classified information.
Authorities have not released her identity or whereabouts. They also have not said publicly whether they believed she was working for the Chinese government.
She was living in the US as a student on a J-1 visa, according to the FBI.
Defendants must normally be indicted within a month of their arrest. Bishop's defence team waived the deadline in exchange for an opportunity to view the prosecution's evidence, much of which is classified.
Bishop, who is a lieutenant colonel in the US army reserve, worked in the field of cyberdefence at Pacific Command from May 2011 until his arrest. Prior to that, he helped develop Pacific Command strategy and policy.
Bishop was familiar with the Pacific Command's highest priority capability gaps, the command's chief of staff, Major General Anthony Crutchfield, said in a declaration filed in support of the prosecution's motion to have him detained without bail.
From 2010 to 2012, Bishop had access to "top secret" information on efforts to defend against a ballistic missile attack from North Korea, he said.
US district court judge Leslie Kobayashi allowed him to move to a halfway house in June.
Do you guys think maybe its a model/lesson to serve as warning to all those employees of companies with defense contracts with US government to think twice about dating Asians, now in this foreign-relations political climate?
